Now in its third year, the Stock Market Challenge is quickly becoming one of our most popular events. It’s not surprising that so many people want to get in on the fun– it really is an experience you won’t get anywhere else! CFA_Nebraska is serving as Presenting Sponsor, and we are so grateful to them!
The Stock Market Challenge is a dual event, featuring a student competition in the afternoon, followed by an adult competition in the evening. Both will be full of action-packed competition, pitting four-person teams against each other on the ‘trading floor.’ Each team will get $1,000,000 in mock stock and must buy and sell shares throughout the simulated 60-day trading period. A new trading day starting every 80 seconds, so you’ve got to think fast! Trades are reflected immediately on three large projection screens which track stock prices, show which teams are in the lead, and provide graphic depictions of stock performance. For the students, it’s an exciting introduction to how the stock market functions and how traders and investors fit into the system. For the adults, it’ll be an evening of (mostly) friendly competition as teams from businesses all over the area fight to be named the smartest investors in Lincoln!
This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, November 14th at Innovation Campus, and there are several ways to get involved! Sponsors have choices at many levels: $250 sponsors one student team, $750 gets a corporate team on the floor for the evening event, and $1,500 Gold Level Sponsor gets you one corporate team and sponsors three student teams! If past years are any indication, this event will be highly competitive and a ton of fun!
We also still have room for student teams, but those spots are fill up quickly! For more information on sponsorship or registering student teams, contact Reya at firstname.lastname@example.org.
