Bloomfield Hills Financial Stock to Scholarship Challenge
Each participant is given
access to a simulated online trading account where they will be able to
leverage their starting capital ($100,000) and independently make investment
decisions to buy and sell stocks and mutual funds. (No real money is
invested.) The goal is to amass more assets in their account than any other
participant. This challenge is a risk-free opportunity for students to gain a
working understanding and appreciation for the daily “ups and downs” of the
market. The program is quite simple and takes little time away from classroom
