Registration is open for the late spring session of the Stock Market Game through April 18. Students in grades 4-12 are invited to participate in the eight-week interactive, educational simulation and competition that teaches personal finance, economics, technology and team-building skills.
Teachers use the program to enhance mathematics, social studies, economics, business and technology classes by reinforcing economic and investing concepts and providing real-world applications. Student teams invest $100,000 over the contest period in stocks and/or mutual funds. Activities are correlated to Kentucky and national mathematics standards.
Teachers may register a class or a team of students, and students may also register individually or with a group of friends. Prizes are available at state and national levels.
