Congratulations Stevenson High!

We just received the results regarding the Stevenson High competitors! We are lucky to have such a passionate teacher provide us with frequent updates on his students' success using MarketClub. Here is an update of the most recent success in their stock market competition...

Well, the results are in. One of our teams finished 7th, and another 14th out of a field of 120 +!! On the other hand, the two other teams finished in the 80's (approx.) and 100 plus. Now, what is exciting is that the two top finishers are freshman and sophomores and they religiously followed MarketClub.

Thanks again for your help. You have a great product and I am looking forward to next years competitions.

Regards,
