We are pleased to announce the winners of the fall session of the Stock Market Game™ experience. The Maryland Council on Economic Education (MCEE) offers the Stock Market Game™ to students and teachers throughout Maryland in grades 4-12 as a transformational, hands-on learning activity.
This program allows students to learn critical skills in saving and investing by working in teams to invest a model portfolio of $100,000. Student teams compete against teams in their grade band from across the state to earn the highest return on their portfolio. In the fall session, students began investing their portfolios in early October after learning the basic terminology and mechanics of investing. The fall session concluded just before the holiday season in December giving students ample time to learn the impact of global events such as the COVID-19 pandemic on their portfolios.
The teacher of the winning teams in each school will receive a banner to display in their classroom to recognize their exceptional achievement. Each teacher and school will also be recognized at the Maryland Council on Economic Education’s Annual Student Achievement and Awards Program to be held at the end of the academic year. Congratulations to all of the winners!
