The Stock Market Game program transports students into real world investing while learning academic concepts that relate to their entire core curriculum. This competition includes students in grades 4-12. Students work in teams practicing leadership, organization, negotiation, and cooperation. As they work to grow their $100,000 virtual cash account, trading in real time, into a top-performing portfolio (which starts earning interest even before the game begins!), they develop strong interests in the daily events that shape our world and reinforce concepts in math, business, economics, language arts and social studies that they are learning in the classroom. Students compete against other teams in their age groups across Nebraska, so students love this exciting program!
