According to a press release, “The Fall 2019 SIFMA Foundation InvestWrite competition required students to write an essay describing a dream they hope to achieve. Essays laid out a financial plan to pay for their dream with a pitch to a panel of virtual investors. The students were expected to identify stocks, bonds or mutual funds that could be included in a portfolio to grow their investors’ seed money to fulfill their dream. InvestWrite, is an innovative national writing competition and a program of the SIFMA Foundation offered exclusively to teachers and students participating in The Stock Market Game.” Catherine Bart/Leader
