The Council for Economic Education (CEE) has launched an election video contest for K-12 classroom teachers.

This contest has students ask, via their teachers, for the best economic advice they can give our new president. Teachers should record one student, or a group of students, answering the question “What should the next president do to improve the economy?”

This contest is hosted on Facebook, therefore teachers who want to enter the contest will need access to Facebook. Not all schools allow access to Facebook, so please plan accordingly by uploading your video to Facebook via a computer not associated with your school, if necessary.

One winner will be chosen by CEE Facebook fans, and at least one winner will be chosen by one or more economists selected as judges by CEE. Prizes include a $500 American Express gift card for each teacher winner, and $25 iTunes gift cards for the student(s) featured in the winning videos.

Submission deadline is Oct. 2. Voting period will run from Oct. 3-18. Go here for more information or contact Susan Sandage at (502) 267-3570 or toll-free at (800) 436-3266.
