What would you do if you were given $100,000? Would you spend it all at once? Would you put it directly into a savings account?
For a group of students at Churchill Jr. High, the answer would be to invest and grow the money.
With the help of advisor Chris Winn, this team of financially savvy teens traded their way to second place in the statewide Stock Market Game competition. More than 200 teams participated in school throughout Utah.
By making calculated decisions, the Churchill group managed to transform their hypothetical $100,000 into $113,808.81. Not bad for a couple of students who have yet to file their own tax returns.
