Congratulations to the winning teams for the Spring 2020 Stock Market Challenge! North Star High School in Rudyard took first place, followed by Washington Middle School in Glendive and Bigfork High School.
The Stock Market Game is a nine-week simulation in which students are given a hypothetical $100,000 to invest in the stock market. Students must have at least five separate stocks and/or mutual funds at the end of the simulation, so research and diversification are crucial for success. Top state winners are given cash awards thanks to the generous sponsorship of Glacier Bancorp and its Montana family of banks.
For fall 2020 the simulation will run from October 12 to December 11, 2020.
To register for the Stock Market Game, go to the SMG web page, www.stockmarketgame.org, and click on the link in the upper right hand corner of the page labeled ‘Registration’.

Glacier Bancorp and its Montana family of banks are sponsoring all team fees this year to encourage increased participation in programming that can better adapt to the uncertainties of remote learning.
