CLIMB USA is hosting a multi-regional Stock Market Experience which will be a perfect combination of fun, networking, friendly competition and learning to build wealth! The SME is a simulation investment game designed for middle & high school students, as well as adults.
Participants will compete in the Youth Competition (under 18) or in the Adult Competition (18 and older) and may register as an individual player or as part of a team. Each participant will manage a fictional $100,000 stock portfolio from June 26th to August 4th. The individuals with the most portfolio growth over that time win recognition and prizes! All participants will learn a ton and meet colorful industry experts along the way.
To assist in our national economic empowerment strategy, CLIMB has partnered with the African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC), CUNA Mutual Group Foundation, Inc and BetterInvesting, national non-profits with an expansive network to support the onboarding of our collective impact partners: local community-based organizations serving youth of color.
In support of our mission to help teens and young adults improve their financial capability through education and capital markets engagement, the Stock Market Experience truly is a Game Changer! Our vision is that all teens, young adults, and households achieve financial independence no matter what their socioeconomic starting point.
We look forward to your participation!
