Rock Canyon students soar at Stock Market Challenge

Competition simulated New York Stock Exchange

Posted

Rock Canyon High School teams won first and second place at the Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge presented by Bank of America on Nov. 9 at the Cable Center on the University of Denver’s campus.

The Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge is an immersive simulation of what it’s like to trade stocks on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Students get to be portfolio managers for the day and buy and sell stocks in a high-intensity environment, as giant screens show the fluctuations of the market. Each minute in real life equates to one full day of trading, so students feel the same intensity as those on the floor of the actual stock exchange.

Rock Canyon brought nearly 120 students to the competition. They were up against 150 students from schools all over the region, including a neighboring Highlands Ranch school, Mountain Vista High School. The winning Rock Canyon teams were awarded trophies.
