Investment Competition

The Wharton Global High School Investment Competition is a free, online investment simulation for high school students and teachers. Participants compete with students from around the world and learn about finance, teamwork, strategy-building and communication. Over the course of 10 weeks, teams are responsible for managing a portfolio of $100,000 in virtual cash using the Wharton Investment Simulator (WInS).


Wharton Global Youth Comment and Win

The Comment and Win contest is an opportunity for high school students to dig into the hundreds of online Knowledge@Wharton High School articles, videos and podcasts about business, finance, entrepreneurship, leadership, economics, career and college prep and leave compelling comments about the topics that interest them most. It’s a great way to read, reflect, and deepen the conversation around some fascinating issues – and get recognition for their ideas. The contest runs annually from June through August.
