Fall, Spring and Year-Long Programs
The Stock Market Game™ is an online education program used to help teach math, social studies, business, economics, and language skills while focusing on the importance of long-term saving and investment. Students in grades 4-12 participate in teams and manage a simulated investment portfolio. During each session, student teams compare the performance of their portfolios with other teams in Virginia and their region. They can continue to manage their portfolios beyond the competition periods.
Invest It ForwardTM
Sign up to have industry professionals visit your classes to deepen students’ understanding of the role of capital markets in everyday life. Guest speakers enliven the classroom and provide a role model for students. Invest It ForwardTM provides speakers with presentation materials which correlate to the SMG. The program is free for teachers. To register, visit https://investitforward.sifma.org/.
Students and teachers already participating in the Stock Market Game™ should consider this national writing competition.
