Congratulations to social studies teacher Trent Goldsmith and Prep economics students for their excellent performances in two recent area competitions.
On Tuesday, November 13, members of the Economics Challenge Club at Prep finished sixth as a school in overall returns at the 3rd Annual Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge in Lincoln. Teams from each participating school were given a theoretical $1M to invest over the course of 60 trading days, and each trading day lasted 80 seconds, During that brief time, team members had to assess the market and make investment decisions.
Teams of Prep students also finished 1,2,3 and in six of the top ten spots in the on-level division at the Nebraska EconChallenge earlier this month. Prep also had 13 of the top 20 teams. At the event, students from 129 schools from across the state competed on their understanding of economics.
