Kids, can you spell e-l-a-s-t-i-c-i-t-y for $500?
But I mean it.. about the kids and about the $500
So thanks to the Cleveland Plain Dealer for pointing out an economics contest for kids sponsored by the Cleveland Federal Reserve. Here is how they can earn $$:
Pick a show or episode and investigate the scenes to find the basic economic concepts within. Then write an essay, poem, play, or short story explaining how the show or episode demonstrates some of those concepts.Top Prize = $500. and 11th and 12th graders in Western Pennylvania are eligible! Since yes, Pittsburgh is in the Cleveland Federal Reserve's district.
You can pick a comedy or drama, documentary or sports show, reality show or soap opera. But whatever you choose, the show or episode must explore basic economic principles, and it must be a show that you wouldn't be embarrassed to watch with your grandma. And for those of you who don't embarrass easily, that means no programs rated TV-MA, programs rated for mature audiences.
and no.. I do not provide ghost writing services.. nor do I probably watch whatever tv shows kids in high school watch these days. Do kids in high school watch tv these days?
