Fall and Spring Stock Market Game™

For each competition, teams are placed in regions based on the location of VCEE’s affiliated university-based Centers. Elementary, middle and high school teams compete in the same region.

Two rankings are posted weekly on the SMG website (Region and Coordinator) based on value of the portfolio.  The Coordinator ranking is the state ranking of the top 100 teams.
