2008 Video Contest Winners

And the winners are…

Here are three winning entries from the Fraser Institute’s 2008 Student Video Contest. First place, high school goes to Alyssa Moore for “Save Canada’s Health Care.” First place, post-secondary goes to Richard Norman and Tim Mak for “Dog Days,” and second place goes to Matt Bufton for “Health Care in Canada: Can Competition Heal.”

Additional winning entries can be viewed on the Video Contest playlist.

These students should be commended for their original, entertaining videos that demonstrated how economics can be used to tackle the problems in the Canadian health care system. Next year’s contest will be announced soon – students can win thousands of dollars in cash!
