What do you think about price gouging during natural disasters? When Hurricane Irma hit, this was a hot topic of debate in the United States and John Stossel wants to hear your take!

Some more information from the Stossel in the Classroom site:

Natural disasters often bring people together, as they undertake rescue operations and work to rebuild their communities. People outside the affected communities usually offer additional support. But what about those that see a disaster as a way to make money? Watch John Stossel’s video about “price gouging” and create a 1-3-minute video, arguing for or against laws that prohibit price “gouging” during an emergency. How do such laws affect disaster victims? How do they change the incentives of potential suppliers?

Here are the rules:

  • Filmmakers between the ages of 14 – 23 are eligible
  • Video must be 1 – 3 minutes
  • Video must be uploaded to Youtube
  • Video must be original work
  • Any content in the video must not be in violation of copyright
  • Videos must be submitted by 11:59pm EST on February 26, 2018

Prizes are available to contestants. These include:

  • 1st Place Prize: $1,500, an all-expense-paid trip to NYC, and lunch with John Stossel
  • 2nd Place Prize: $750
  • Finalist prize for the next top ten videos: $200

If you have what it takes, get those cameras rolling and submit your video to Stossel in the Classroom for the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes!
