Deer Valley High School issued the following announcement on Feb. 8.
The Boulder Creek Senior Economics students participated in a state-wide competition run by the Arizona Council on Economic Education. The Stock Market Game is an online investment simulation in which students invest a hypothetical $100,000 in American stock markets over a 12-week period. The students are taught investment strategies and stock market tips and tricks. All investment choices are made by the students and are based on real time stock market prices and transactions.
The Stock Market Game helps students develop positive money habits and prepares them for their future by helping them to gain a fundamental understanding of investing and making money to work for them.
Boulder Creek students competed against more than 500 students state-wide during a period of time in which the Stock Market was volatile. Despite that, the winning BCHS team's portfolio grew by 2.9% over the investment period and exceeded the S&P 500 by almost 7%.
Congratulations to this year’s Boulder Creek High School Stock Market Team, Savannah Santa Cruz, Sophie Lee and Kenzie Roberts for taking FIRST place in the Arizona Stock Market Game!
