Bourstad

Want to introduce your students to stock market investing? Why not have them participate in a stock market simulation where they’re given a fictitious amount of $200,000 to build and manage a portfolio ? There are two ways to participate:

  • The Bourstad Challenge runs each year from February to April and has three components: portfolio management, responsible investment and financial performance. Participants build a portfolio from a selection of more than 500 real-life securities and their transactions are processed in real time. Over $30,000 in prizes are awarded at the end of the contest. Registration fees apply.
