CHOICES Chapter Members Stock Market Game

Fall: September 14 – December 4, 2020

Registration Deadline: September 12, 2020, ages 10-18. You must be a CHOICES Chapter Member to participate.

The CHOICES chapter of MCGT will be offering a free online opportunity for CHOICES Chapter member students ages 10 – 18 to play The Stock Market Game (TSMG).  TSMG will be offered at no cost to Minnesota groups thanks to funding from Charles Schwab Foundation!

Not a member of the CHOICES chapter? You can add a second chapter for $18 or switch your chapter membership by emailing the MCGT office at [email protected]

The game gives students $100,000 and allows them to buy and sell stocks for a 12 week period to see how the market moves.  This 12 week period will include a US Presidential election and will likely have a lot of interesting ups and downs as a result.  Once a week, students will have an opportunity to meet via Zoom with the class to discuss stock ideas and share tips.    Meeting via Zoom is not a requirement to participate.
Lorri Jennings has offered this opportunity twice before and has had multiple students win state wide recognition for their portfolio performance.  This is solely due to the ideas and decisions made by the kids in the class!  Often, this becomes a family group discussion opportunity based on the various industries parents are active in, and it can be a lot of fun for the entire family.  Please email Lorri Jennings at [email protected]  (CHOICES Treasurer) by Wednesday September 12th to register your student ages 10-18 for the online opportunity to play the Stock Market Game.
