Stossel in the Classroom's annual contests are created to encourage critical thinking. By making it easy for teachers and homeschoolers to include a fresh perspective in their curriculums, these contests have inspired millions of students to expand their understanding of economics, civics, free markets, liberty, and life.
Students having numerous different topics to choose from allows them to write on the subject that speaks to them the most. The contest is open to students in grades 5-12, age 10-18, residing in North America, Hawaii, or at a U.S. military address. Students may submit their essays directly, or have them submitted by a teacher or parent. Winners will be announced in the Summertime.
