Stock Market Challenge Results

December 06, 2017

   Osceola Public Schools sent a team of four students to the Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge on November 14 in Lincoln, Nebraska. The students that represented Osceola were Caden Theis, Garrett Fisher, Curtis Hasenkamp, and Tanner Kropatsch. They competed against forty-nine teams from different schools across the state.  There were simulated days, with each day lasting only ninety seconds. Each day represented one round, and the competition lasted sixty days. The starting investment for each team was a million dollars with twenty-six different companies to choose from. For each day, they could decide if they wanted to buy, sell, or trade their stocks.

   Our team was struggling for a while, then made an exciting jump to first place, causing quite a stir on the stock market floor. The lead was held for a short time. Their ROI, Return on Investment, was 103.9%, and the Bulldog team grew their net worth to $2,039,041.25. The team ended up placing tenth. The Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge was a very fun and educational experience to participate in. Thank you to Pinnacle Bank for sponsoring Osceola team in the stock market challenge and to everyone involved in the Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge!
