PREVIOUS WINNING ENTRIES
Rockonomix started as a national video competition for college students from the University of West Georgia. In 2020, the Michigan Council on Economic Education is sponsoring a similar competition for Michigan students. The Rockonomix educational experience utilizes project-based learning to motivate student engagement by using popular media to reinforce basic economic principles. The idea is simple, students are asked to pick a popular song, write new economics themed lyrics and produce a new music video parody. This competition is open to Michigan students in grades 7-12.
