Why participate in competitions?
Competitions are a great way to further students' knowledge in finance and economics. Team leaders will develop their leadership skills as they lead small groups of girls through the criteria of each competition. Through team work, students will learn to grow as investors and as individuals. And the bonds of friendship built during the competition will long outlast the competition itself!
Wharton Global High School Investment Competition
The Wharton Global High School Investment Competition (previously named Knowledge@Wharton High School Investment Competition) is a free, global, online investment simulation for high school students (9th to 12th grade) and teachers.
Teams examine a brief client profile and are tasked with working collaboratively to meet that client’s short- and long-term investment goals as they try to win his or her business. Equipped with an approved stock list (a selection of domestic and international equities) and the Wharton Investment Simulator (WInS), which allows them to buy and sell stocks, over the course of 10 weeks students develop an investment strategy, analyze industries and companies, and build a portfolio using $100,000 in virtual cash.
Winners are selected on the strength and articulation of their team strategies, not on the growth of their portfolios, which is a key differentiator between this investment challenge and others.

NY Fed Challenge
The High School Fed Challenge is a competition designed to bring real-world economics into the classroom. Teams play the role of monetary policymakers by analyzing economic conditions and recommending a course for monetary policy.
Teams can compete in one of two divisions–Maiden Lane or Liberty Street–depending on the level of economics-related courses taken by students. Leading up to the competition, New York Fed staff will be hosting orientations and a boot camp for students as well as providing online resources to aid students as they prepare for the competition.
