Your class, as a team, will be competing with other classes from high schools in Philadelphia. Each team, led by its teacher, will be responsible for managing a portfolio of $100,000 in virtual cash. The competition will have two categories for winners. First, Top Class, which is the class with the largest return on its investment after eight weeks. Second, Top Analysts, which are the students who develop the most effective investment strategy.
