Dallas High School students place in stock market competition


DALLAS TWP. — A team from Dallas Senior High School was recognized for its success in picking stocks in the 2015-16 Stock Market Game competition.

The Stock Market Game is a 10-week simulation during which students from three grade categories (4-6, 7-8, 9-12) invest an imaginary $100,000 by buying and selling stocks listed on the major securities exchanges (New York, American and NASDAQ). Team rankings are based on portfolio values at the end of the game. More than 330 teams, a record number, participated in the Stock Market Game in 2015-16 in the fall, late fall, spring, late spring and year-long versions of the game.

Teams that finished first, second and third in their grade categories from the area served by the Honesdale National Bank Center for Economic Education at The University of Scranton were recognized at a recent awards ceremony. A team from Dallas Senior High School finished third in the spring competition at the 9-12 grade level. The awards ceremony was sponsored by the Honesdale National Bank.

The Stock Market Game is a program of EconomicsPennsylvania, a statewide not-for-profit affiliate of the national Council for Economic Education.

A team from Dallas Senior High School came in third place, grades 9-12, in the Spring Stock Market Game, with an ending portfolio of $108,417.
