Leaders hold their
spots in stock simulation

A homeschool team moves up
in the "aggressive" division

Team HI407378 from Kealakehe High and team HI409342 from Moanalua High retained there first place finishes from last week in the Hawaii Stock Market Simulation.

Pacific Island Bible Church Homeschoolers team HI405129 moved up to first place from a second-place finish last week.

On Feb. 14, about 2,000 Hawaii students in grades three to 12 began the simulation for the spring semester. Teams, of two to four students each invest a hypothetical $100,000 in stocks, bonds and mutual funds over a 10-week period. Students participate in divisions based on their investment styles to learn how the market system works.

The Hawaii Council on Economic Education partners with the state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs to run the program. The Star-Bulletin will post results from the top student teams each week.
