Briarwood eighth in investment contest
A team of four Briarwood Elementary School students took eighth place
in the fall 2006 statewide Take Stock in Kentucky investment
competition.
More than 300 teams from across the state competed in the fall Take
Stock in Kentucky competition in which teams of students research
Kentucky companies, make investment decisions and create their
portfolios, investing $100,000 in imaginary money in stocks over a 10week period. Teams are ranked on the equity in their portfolios.
The Briarwood team, including Alexander Smith, Billy Adams, Josh Dyer
and Dane Shindell, finished the 10-week competition with a portfolio
worth $105,537.30. State winner Farley Elementary School had a
portfolio valued at $127,949.05 after 10 weeks.
The Briarwood team, advised by Briarwood curriculum coordinator Darlene
Porter, was the only school in the Warren County area to finish in the
top 10.
Sponsored by Hilliard Lyons, Take Stock in Kentucky - a spinoff of the
national [Stock Market Game] simulation - requires students to enroll
in teams and manage a simulated investment portfolio for 10 weeks. The
[Stock Market Game] lasts 15 weeks.
