Stock Market Game Begins October 2

Middle School and High School can sign up to play the Stock Market Game beginning October 2.

Students can work individually or form teams to spend $100,000 in virtual money to build a diversified investment portfolio of stocks. Trades happen in real time so students experience how real-world events impact the capital market. A prize will be awarded to the top team or individual. Register on the Kent Memorial Library website.
