Project 3: WILFRED LAURIER STOCK MARKET COMPETITION
For the past five years, students involved in enterprise education at Lakewood Academy have participated in the Wilfred Laurier Stock Market Competition (February - April). This is a Canada-wide stock market simulation in which teams of students invest $100,000.00 hypothetical dollars in companies of their choice. Each team has to place a minimum of nine trades and the team with the portfolio of greatest value at the end of the competition wins. There are also regional winners.
Internet, Intranet and E-mail resources through our Windows NT network at Lakewood Academy.
We are requesting 6 student accounts; one account per team not per student
The teachers and participating students will evaluate the success of the project through discussing the project on an ongoing basis as well as at the end of the competition. Students decision-making abilities will be considered as well as their overall comprehension of the stock market in terms of its risk and profit potential. Risk factors in terms of the different types of stocks available and individual investment objectives will also be considered. Students will also complete a written evaluation of the competition at the end.
