Stock Market Challenge
December 3, 2020
This high energy event is designed to simulate the excitement of a real-life trading floor. Teams of 4 to 5 students will learn to work together, leverage each other’s strengths, and use critical thinking skills while analyzing news articles and data during a high stakes and fierce competition.
Each team is issued $1,000,000 of “mock stock” and must buy and sell shares in fictitious companies throughout a simulated 60-day trading period. Trading is fast, fun, and furious with a new day starting every 60 seconds! The goal of each team is to achieve the greatest rate of return on investment by the end of the simulated trading session that will last a total of 90 minutes.
Areas of Focus:
Finance and Accounting, Financial Literacy, Business Etiquette, Public Speaking and Effective Collaboration.
Not only will students compete in the hands on experiential learning event that is the Stock Market Challenge simulation, but they will also complete five in-class lessons and be introduced to the importance of investing and saving, create team-building skills, and gain the knowledge to build a solid financial foundation for their future!
Educators may register their students through Junior Achievement of Greater Cleveland (https://cleveland.ja.org/). Contact information will be posted when registration is available.
