Congratulation to Caden Brown! He is the Georgia Stock Market Game STATE winner beating out more than 500 teams across the state. Sponsored by the Georgia Council on Economic Education, the Stock Market Game™ is an online simulation in which students manage a hypothetical $100,000 portfolio over a 10-week period and invest in stocks. Under the guidance of his QUEST teacher, Dr. Emerson Chester, Caden invested his hypothetical $100,000 in four stocks, including a large holding in Netflix. Monitoring the market, buying and selling when necessary, his investment grew to $150,668.
