CHC Awards Reception 2014

The SIFMA Foundation's annual Capitol Hill Challenge (CHC) is an exciting national financial education competition for middle and high school students and reaches all 50 US states and their members of Congress. This year, nearly 15,000 students, from 733 schools, and 100 percent of Congress participated in the Capitol Hill Challenge.

This special version of the Stock Market Game™ pairs members of Congress with participating schools. Since its inception in 2004, CHC has made 2,212 matches of U.S. Representatives and Senators with schools, encompassing more than 60,000 students across the country. 

Students from around the country traveled to Washington, D.C. in recognition of their Top 10 ranking in SIFMA's Capitol Hill Challenge. The students met with business, government and education leaders to learn about fiscal policy and the role of the capital markets. This year saw a remarkable 100% participation by Congress in the program.  

On June 11th, the Top 10 teams were recognized at an Awards Reception in their honor.
