The stock market program teaches students and teachers how to invest in stocks, make stock market trades, analyze markets, and build stock market portfolios while competing with other students.  

The student with the highest portfolio value (no teams) in our spring full semester game, per sponsored area, will win a Chromebook!  The winning student may pick up the Chromebook at a sponsor's location, no delivery.
