Stock Market Game™ Program

Fall and Spring Semester Programs 
The Stock Market Game™ is an online education program used to help teach math, social studies, business, economics, and language skills while focusing on the importance of long-term saving and investment. Students in grades 4-12 participate in teams and manage a simulated investment portfolio.  Each semester there is a competition which allows student teams to compare the performance of their portfolios with other teams in Virginia and their region.  The Spring Semester is a 15-week program and allows students to continue to manage their portfolios beyond the competition period.

Fee:  $10 per team (up to 4 students per team): $25 for a single team

Details/Registration
Year-long Program
This year-long Stock Market Game™ program has all the learning opportunities spread over a longer period of time. Students in grades 4-12 participate in teams and manage a simulated investment portfolio during the school year.
Fee:  $20 per team (up to 4 students per team); $25 for a single team
 
Details/Registration

Reduced team fees for 2014-15 are made possible due to the generous financial support provided by BB&T Scott & Stringfellow.
 

InvestWrite
Students and teachers that are already participating in the Stock Market Game™ program should also consider this innovative national writing competition.  A separate essay topic for elementary, middle, and high school students will stir critical thinking and help reinforce concepts learned in the classroom.  Essay questions will be available on the InvestWrite website.
