Each team consists of 4-5 students. They start with $100,000 and try to invest wisely to increase their investment total over a 14- week period. This semester, the team of Daniel Schneider, Cody Jarmer, Kelsey Paplow, Amber Knakmuhs, and Michelle Yang placed third out of over 800 teams in the state. This team was actual- ly in first place for twelve weeks, but unfortunately, had a difficult thirteenth week. This team increased their investment by 28% over 14 weeks. The top three teams are invited to a banquet in Minneapolis on January 16th. Their advisor, Mr. Leo Theisen, had this to say about the stock market game: "rhis game is a great supplement to the business classes I teach. Students really get excited about fol- lowing the progress of the stocks they purchase. It is a great real-life lesson on how the market really works. They get a feel for the ups and downs of the stock mar- ket. The research they do on companies really means something because they want their stocks to go up. (That doesn't always hap- pen!) Many students contin- ue to be interested in the stock market as a result of their experience.
