Students Place in Stock Market Game State Competition

In the Fall, students in Mrs. Crosetto’s Money Management Class participated in the Stock Market Game.

The Stock Market Game (SMG) is a competition created by the Foundation for Free Enterprise Education (FEEE) and the SIFMA Foundation, that brings a variety of programs to students in Pennsylvania. 

SMG is an online simulation of the global capital markets that engages 4th-12th graders in the world of economics, investing, and personal finance and prepares them for financially independent futures.

The competition offers three high school-level divisions, one in the Fall, one in the Spring, and one that runs all year long.

Two high school students, Evan Fry and Dylan Hershey, competed in the Fall competition where they placed 2nd in the region and 3rd in the state. They competed against over 6,000 teams and received almost a 26% return in 10 weeks from their invested stocks. Their most profitable stock was O’Reilly Auto Parts.

Additionally, Lititz Elementary 6th Grade teachers Mr. Eakin, Mr. Daecher, and Mr. White had each of their students break into small groups to participate in the Spring semester of the Middle School division. Xander Edinger, Leo Freydlin, Emma Lovelock, and Aidy Walker from Mr. Eakin’s class placed 2nd in the regional competition, with a total equity of $101,008.86.

Students had a fantastic time learning about the Stock Market!
