Wagner Wins Stock Market Game Challenge

Wagner High School teacher Michelle Dech, and her students, Desman Horace, Cyrena Ybarra and Adrien Luedke placed first in the Stock Market Game where over 500 teams in Texas schools competed. The Stock Market Game is an engaging educational program used in classrooms nationwide to teach economics, math, social studies, business, language arts and technology while focusing on the importance of developing real world personal finance skills. Teams of students in grades 4-12 use the SMG simulation to learn the basics of investing as they create and manage an online portfolio over 10 weeks. Sketchers was the stock that earned them $9,000.00 in 10 weeks. The competition was sponsored by Plains Capital Bank. Way to go!
