The Connecticut Stock Market Game™ program announced two teams from Macdonough School were the top finishers in Connecticut for the Elementary School division of their fall session.
Starting with a virtual cash account of $100,000, students strived to create the best-performing portfolio using a live trading simulation. They invested in companies, tracked their investments, and competed with other school teams across the state during a ten week session in a race to make the most of their investments.
The first place team from Mrs. Paul's class turned their intial investment into $129,710.81, while the students in Miss Claffey's class earned an impressive $117,965.51.
The Macdonough teams were also in the top ten statewide out of more than twelve hundred teams representing elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, colleges, and adult teams.
The students and teachers will be honored at a ceremony hosted by the Connecticut Council on Economic Education.
