SIFMA Stock Market Competition

The 100 Black Men of Austin, Inc. has started a pilot to introduce high school students to investment and stocks.  The Stock Market Game is an online simulation of the global capital markets and engages students in grades 4-12 in the world of economics, investing and personal finance with the goal of preparing them for financially independent futures. Participants are given a virtual $100,000 to invest in stocks, bonds, and mutual funds over a 10 – week period (January – April). Played as a team of 3-5 members, students develop and enhance skills in leadership, management, research, problem solving, and team-building.  Charles Schwab and NFP partnered with the 100 to share their expertise and provide mentoring resources along the way.
