Junior Achievement Stockmarket Challenge

 

Wow what an awesome day we had.  Osceola took one team to the Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge in Lincoln, Nebraska.  A big thank you goes out to Pinnacle Bank of Osceola for sponsoring our team. The team had to pick their stocks prior to going and when the game began Osceola found themselves in second place, but quickly took over the first place position.  It was only minutes before they started to fall in rank. The stock market game is played where a day is only 90 seconds long, it’s fast paced with lots of information coming at the students to analyze and utilize to make smart quick decisions. Half way through the team was in 12th place but by day 50 had fallen to 28th position.  On day 60 they had made some smart financial decisions and made their way back up to 10th place out of 68 teams. They started with 1,000,000 and ended with 1,786,252.75 a return on investment of +82.79% It was a very exciting day for everyone and what a great group of students I had the privilege of taking to the challenge.
