Washington, DC (NAPSI) - Are you interested in learning more about the importance of saving and investing and possibly having your member of Congress visit your school? Learn more about the Capitol Hill Challenge.
Using the SIFMA Foundation’s award-winning Stock Market Game™ program, each student team manages a hypothetical $100,000 online portfolio and “invests” in real stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
The program teaches the importance of saving and investing, promotes a better understanding of the government, and helps students learn about the global economy, strengthen their personal financial skills and improve their knowledge of math, economics and business.
At the end of the 14-week competition, the Top 10 teams get to visit Washington, D.C. to meet their representative and attend an awards reception in their honor.
