The simulation is one of the most effective learning tools available about the free enterprise system for students in grades four through 12. The program enables teams of students to invest a hypothetical $100,000 in the stock market over a 13-week period. Winners are determined on the percentage return above or below S&P 500 growth. The team outperformed the S&P by 3.49% with a portfolio of $108,321.

MCEE will award prizes to each first and second place team in each region from each division to be presented at the school’s local awards ceremony this spring
