Trading will start on February 1, 2007. The competition is for high school and college students (or entire classes) who are interested in financial literacy, economics and/or stock markets. The competition can be easily incorporated into existing courses or assigned as extra credit work. Every participating student will receive a trading budget to invest in virtual and real stock. Winners of the competition will be students who made the smartest investment choices by increasing the values of their stock portfolios.
