AES Student Earns Stock Market Recognition

Congratulations to Evan O’Leary who came in second place in New Hampshire's Stock Market Game. Participating schools/students in New Hampshire were given a virtual $100,000 to invest through the game into stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Their chosen investments gained or lost value following real stock market data. Evan's investment portfolio earned the second most amount of money in the state. 

In class, the students have learned about the stock market, its history, math needed to calculate investments, personal finance strategies and skills, and have researched companies to invest in using stock quotes, news articles, and more. 

The Stock Market Game is an “online simulation of the global capital markets that engages students grades 4-12 in the world of economics, investing and personal finance and that has prepared nearly 20 million students for financially in dependent futures."
