About the Capitol Hill Challenge
CHC matches Members of Congress with students, teachers, and schools competing in The Stock Market Game™ in their respective district or state. Student teams manage a hypothetical $100,000 online portfolio and invest in real stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Since its inception in 2004, CHC has made over 2,200 matches of U.S. Representatives and Senators with schools, encompassing more than 60,000 students across the country.
CHC partners up to 10 junior high or high school teams (3-5 students each) with your local Member of Congress (MOC). Students may only participate on ONE team. Your school must be located in the MOC's district with matching zip code. There is no charge for the CHC teams. However, only two schools per MOC can participate. Students taking part in a separate SMG game window can also take part in CHC.
The 10 CHC teams at the end of the competition with the highest-ranked portfolios (one winning team per Member of Congress) will win a trip to Washington, D.C. to meet their Member of Congress and be recognized at an awards reception on Capitol Hill. During their visit, students and teachers will meet with business, government, and education leaders to learn about fiscal policy making, the role of the capital markets, and global economic trends. The winners will also have the opportunity to tour financial landmarks and national monuments.
2016 Dates: Feb 1-May 6, 2016. If you are interested in participating, a Registration Form must be completed in full and submitted online or returned to: firstname.lastname@example.org, Fax: 212-313-1324
