2014 Poster Contest Award Winners

This year, more than 3,800 students from nearly 70 schools illustrated their understanding of economic concepts like scarcity and productive resources for five regional contests. The top 24 entries from each regional competition were submitted for judging in a state-wide competition. From these entries, twelve state winners were selected, along with twelve honorable mention entries. The top twelve winning drawings will be featured in a 2014-15 school-year calendar.
