EHS team takes 3rd in Stock Market Game

Posted February 26, 2015 at 10:39 am

The Joplin Globe hosted their annual fall Stock Market Game. The Stock Market Game is an educational program for students in grades six and above, and the object of the game is for students to have a chance to “play” and learn about the stock market by “investing” their “money” in an experimental, no-risk environment. Each school has one (or more) team(s), and throughout the game, each team tries to grow its stock portfolio by tracking, trading and holding stocks listed in the financial pages of The Joplin Globe.

There were a total of 47 teams that competed and five of those teams were from Miss Krystal Swopes and Mrs. Ashley Rogers’ classes. We had one team that placed third and received $100. The team consisted of Jayson Owsley, Jenny Sibley, Rachel Cross and Sondi Hunter.
