Coronado Stock Market Competition
About the Game
The Coronado Stock Market Competition is a fun way for students to learn how the stock market works. When students join they will be given $10,000 of virtual cash to invest in a variety of stocks, funds, bonds and other investment devices offered on the open stock market. The Market Watch platform follows the real stock market, so students' portfolios will follow the real stock market.
The game is open for students, parents and teachers to join. However, only Coronado students are eligible for the cash prizes based on the top 4 performing portfolios.
Cash Prizes: 1st Place - $20, 2nd Place - $10, 3rd Place - $10, 4th Place - $10 (cash prizes are donated by Mr. Gryboski--no District 11 funds are used)
