Congratulations to all Stock Market Game™ students and teachers during the 2020-2021 school year! It is with great distinction that we announce the state champions and regional winning teams. The Stock Market Game™ (SMG( was made possible by generous funding from our program partners at Ally and the Coastal Credit Union Foundation. Teachers consistently tell us about the positive influence our programs have on their students. The SMG is a virtual stock market simulation where 4th – 12th-grade students work in teams to invest $100,000 in the global capital markets-everything is real except the money. Students take a deep dive into economics, investing and personal finance which helps prepare students for a financially independent future. The program is proven to improve student attendance, engagement, class participation, and improved academic performance, especially in math.
We commend the State Champions on their great accomplishments!
