This spring, "Greater Good" magazine ran its first-ever happiness video competition, inviting 400+ students enrolled in "Human Happiness," a University of California at Berkeley psychology class taught by Dacher Keltner, Faculty Director of the Greater Good Science Center. The winner, out of 60 submissions, is "Bill's Story," which creatively illustrates a key scientific finding: that social connections, not wealth or status, are the key to happiness.
