overview

The Stock Market Challenge is an online simulation of the global capital markets. It engages students in the world of economics, investing, and personal finance to prepare them for financially independent futures. Participants work in teams and are given $100,000 to invest in the stock market and compete against teams across Florida to see which team has the most significant return on investments. Prior knowledge of finance is not required to participate. 8 Cents in a Jar will provide students with a seamless transition into the game, including lesson plans, activities, and open communication with parents.

For the 2022 session, orientation for both students and parents is scheduled for Monday, November 29, 2021, with learning sessions and competition running from December 6, 2021- April 15, 2022, meeting two times a month with their teams virtually. Each team will have a mentor to guide students on their financial decision skills. In addition, all sessions include a student raffle to win a mico-scholarship of stocks or financial contributions towards a 529 savings plan. 

All students must complete the registration form and reside within the Central Florida area. Students within targeted zip codes and partner schools will receive priority. 8 Cents in a Jar will do our best to accommodate all students interested in learning how to invest in the stock market—Email programs@8cents.org for any questions.
