POLITICIANS' PROMISES GONE WRONG
225 CASH PRIZES for students in the 2011-2012
STOSSEL IN THE CLASSROOM
Help your students earn LOTS of great prizes by entering them in Stossel in the Classroom's essay contest, for students aged 13-18! And we have super prizes for teachers, too!
ESSAY TOPIC: Why do you think politicians make promises? When they try to keep them, why are there often unintended consequences? Describe a promise made by a current politician or political candidate from any party, and discuss whether or not they will be able to keep that promise and what, if any, are some potential unintended consequences from that promise. Please use at least one example from the Stossel special or other Stossel report to support your response.
• 225 students will receive CASH PRIZES totaling $23,000.
• 1st and 2nd place students will also win an all-expense-paid trip to New York City for themselves, a chaperone, and the teachers who submitted their essays to see a live taping of STOSSEL.
• Teachers whose students receive at least an honorable mention will receive an autographed copy of one of John Stossel's best-selling books.
• Each teacher may submit an unlimited number of student essays (500-1000 words) on our web site between now and the Feb. 6th deadline.
