Stock Market Challenge Sets Record

What a day! What an amazingly wonderful day!

This year’s JA of Lincoln Stock Market Challenge was truly for one for the record books. Last year, 75 students teams competed for the title of Best Investor. This year, it was 109! That’s a lot of students (over 400!) getting a hands-on experience to build a deeper understanding of our financial institutions, and a lot of teachers going above and beyond to give them that experience.

After all the trading was over, a few teams emerged victorious. Congratulations to:

Student AM (Highest Return on Investment)
1st Place- Lincoln SW Team A
2nd Place- Lincoln SW Team B

Student PM (Highest Return on Investment)
1st Place- Lincoln SW Team I
2nd Place- Lincoln Christian Team E

75 of those teams were sponsored by generous corporations, organizations, and individuals, and we are so grateful for those who are willing to stand with us to prepare these young people for a successful future. These kinds of experiences stick with them for years to come, and it takes generous, forward-thinking people to make them possible.

On that note, we want to offer a huge thank you to our major sponsors:

CFA Society Nebraska
RBC Wealth Management
IntoMetal, Gallup
Raymond James & Associates
Modern Woodmen
UBS Financial Services

Of course, this event isn’t all about the students! In the evening, the gloves came off and 25 corporate teams competed for the title of Best Investor. It was a (mostly) friendly competition, and to the victors go the spoils– unfettered bragging rights!

Congratulations to our corporate winners:

Highest Return on Investment – UBS
Highest Net Worth- CFA Society Nebraska, Team 3

Thank you again to everyone who made this event possible! We’ll see you next year on the stock market floor!
