Announcement: Winners of the I, [Object] Video Contest

NOVEMBER 01, 2013 by CHUCK GRIMMETT

Last March, we announced the I, [Object] Video Contest. Students were asked to make creative videos based on Leonard Read's I, Pencil, which describes the production of a simple pencil as a means to imparting numerous economic concepts such as emergent order, the price system, and cooperation. 

This contest was funded thanks to a generous grant from the Ralph Smeed Memorial Foundation.

(Here is a reminder of the rules.)

Here are the results:

First Prize, $1500 Winner: Calvin Tran


Second Prize, $1000 Winner: Wyatt Buttars


Third Prize, $500 Winner: Natalia LeDang

Primarily because the immediate costs of doing so are so low and the psychic benefits are so high.
