Easton Middle and High School Students Win Stock Market Game Championships


The Stock Market Game is an educational simulation that teaches students about stock markets, economic systems, investment and the global economy.  Participants develop skills in math, language arts, research and critical thinking, while building and maintaining a stock portfolio.  The Stock Market Game was made available to our teachers county-wide to use in social studies classes or as an after-school club.
