CHOICES Stock Market Game

The CHOICES chapter of MCGT will be offering a free online opportunity for CHOICES member students to play The Stock Market Game (TSMG).  TSMG will be offered at no cost to Minnesota groups thanks to funding from a generous donor. For ages 8-18.


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. 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.  Zoom gatherings won’t begin until the week of September 7th and are at various times based on the instructor availability.  

Lorri Jennings has offered this opportunity previously and has had multiple students win statewide 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 1st to register your student ages 8-18 for the online opportunity to play the Stock Market Game. 

CHOICES chapter membership is required and can be added to your MCGT account by emailing Jennifer Farner at [email protected]

The game play dates are: September 7th – December 3rd
