Team Finishes 2nd in State in Stock Market Game

Anyone looking for financial advice may want to consult with a team of Reeds Spring sixth graders. The group recently placed second in the state in the Stock Market Game, which is an educational program that focuses on math, economics, and personal finance knowledge.

Reeds Spring Intermediate School had five groups participate. The team of Bailey Zittleman, August Behn, and Brayden Higginbottom finished with the second-highest portfolio value in the middle school category. Teams begin the simulation with an imaginary investment of $100,000 to trade stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. 
The Stock Market Game is hosted by The SIFMA Foundation, which is dedicated to fostering knowledge and understanding of the financial markets for youth.
