High school students in the Investing class participated in the Stock Market Game sponsored by the Kansas Council for Economics Education. The six teams of students began the game with $100,000 dollars to invest in the stock market. The market game resembles the actual stock market. Students were required to purchase all different types of bonds, stocks, and mutual funds to diversify their portfolios.

Bluestem’s top ranking team included Kaylyn Baker, Justin Masters, and Quinn Hughes. The team placed 8th out of 554 high school teams and placed 14th out of all teams (998), which include middle school, high school, and college teams. The team ended with $108,068.91 that is an $8,068.91 return after paying fees and commissions.

Our top ranking team acquired a 6.7255% return above the S&P 500 growth, which means they beat the market average and made money. Three other Bluestem student teams were successful as well, and would have stayed up with inflation earning a little more than 3.5% rate of return in 4 months. Only two of the Bluestem teams lost money and had a negative return, however, all teams learned from one another. Out of a total of 554 teams nationally, Bluestem placed 8th, 50th, 51st, 52nd, 243rd, 448th.  Congratulations to a job well done.
