Fall 2017 Stock Market Game Winners

"What would you do with $100,000?" That's the quintessential question of the Stock Market Game, and more than 1,600 Arkansas students rose to the challenge by investing a hypothetical $100K portfolio "live" in the Stock Market over 10 weeks during the fall 2017 semester. How did they do? 
 
Find the names of the first- and second-place champs here, as well as our generous SMG sponsors.
 
They will be honored during an awards luncheon at Verizon Arena in Little Rock on Jan. 10.
 
A limited number of tickets is available, so please call our office at 501-682-4230 if you would like to attend. 
 
What Lies Ahead?
 
Our staff and program partners are finalizing the 2018 Professional Development training schedule as well as several new educational initiatives and projects, and we hope to announce them all by early February.
 
Key elements will include training sessions for high school teachers to comply with the new Act 480, including the development of a new Train the Trainer Model in coordination with our six university-based Centers for Economic Education. 
 
Stay tuned.
