Two Ludlow High School Business classes - Mrs. Courtney’s Math for Business and Personal Finance and Mrs. Picard’s Investing in the Stock Market - recently participated in the 11th Annual Junior Achievement of Western Massachusetts Stock Market Competition held at the MassMutual Center in downtown Springfield on Thursday, November 10th.
Courtney explained that there was a total of 142 teams competing at this year’s event. Teams were given one millions dollars (fictitious) to invest into fake companies. A brief description of the companies are provided to enable teams to identify the stocks available to invest in. Video screens provided ongoing team net worth, daily stock prices, and graphical depictions of how stocks are doing.
