Last summer, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) launched their first-ever $50,000 cash prize contest -- a fun and friendly competition in which they urged freedom-loving individuals everywhere to submit videos that, according to the company website, “make the moral case for free enterprise in under two minutes.” These submissions were later evaluated by a four-person panel of distinguished judges -- including notable conservatives such as S.E. Cupp and Jonah Goldberg -- and ranged from the serious to the comedic. The top three cash-winning clips are as follows:

The Moral Paper Route” ($40,000): Submitted by Jared Fuller

Freedom’s Price” ($7,500): Submitted by Joseph Farris

Joke of the Day” ($2,500): Submitted by Don Brookins
