Congratulations to Darren Hiller '26 who was recently named the Yearlong Middle School Winner across the entire state of Maryland for the Maryland Council on Economic Education Stock Market Game™. This was the first year that our 8th Grade Current Events & Public Speaking classes participated in the competition. Darren was officially honored during the MCEE 2022 Student Achievement Awards Ceremony held at Towson University on Wednesday, May 18. You can watch his remarks here.
The Maryland Council on Economic Education offers the Stock Market Game™ to students and teachers throughout Maryland each spring and fall to provide education about stock markets, the American economic system, and the global economy. Participants develop skills in math, language arts, research, and critical thinking, while building and maintaining a stock portfolio. The unique competition gives students real-world experience in investing, requiring them to make decisions about the direction of markets, buying or selling stocks, and completing transactions online. With real-time portfolio statement updates, teams are able to see how their team ranks compared to others, as well as the current value of their stocks.
