Inaugural Contest Provides College Scholarship Money for Local High School Students

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI – The “Stock to Scholarship Challenge” provides Macomb, Oakland and Wayne County high school students a no-risk opportunity to learn about investing in the various markets available to today.

Here’s how it works:

Each student is given access to an online personal stock market account seeded with $100,000 in “play money” to purchase stocks. The participants can trade stocks from their portfolio at will. The goal is to amass more “money” in their account than any other participants.

Participants have a chance to win scholarships to the college or university of their choice. One first place winner will receive $5,000, one second place winner will receive $2,000 and one third place winner will receive $1,000. Winners will have amassed the greatest wealth in their investment accounts. Contestant winners will be announced in May.

Student registration is open now until Feb. 6. The contest begins on Feb. 13 and ends April 30.
