“I have always had such positive experiences with InvestWrite and all that it teaches our students. With the push for The Common Core Standards it fits perfectly and shows exactly what the student knows and what they can do. I believe, 100%, that InvestWrite is the perfect activity to incorporate into the Stock Market Game™ as it truly shows how much students have learned and are able to articulate through writing.” Teacher, Illinois

Your students have entered the world of business and finance by participating in The Stock Market Game program. The perfect companion, our teacher-designed writing component and competition, reinforces their newfound knowledge and hones critical thinking skills.

Utilizing feedback from teachers nationwide, InvestWrite builds a bridge between classroom learning and the real world. InvestWrite complements The Stock Market Game program learning experience and easily integrates across subjects throughout your curriculum.

Whether you and your students win laptops, trips to New York, pizza parties — or not, you’ll all benefit by enhancing your Stock Market Game program experience through writing.

InvestWrite is an optional competition that invites students to relate lessons about business, finance and stock market principles that they learn from participating in the Oklahoma Stock Market Game™, to essay questions such as discussing their understanding of risk, diversification, and compound interest related to their long term retirement goals.  Every student currently registered in The Stock Market Game™ with a valid team login and password is eligible.

All InvestWrite essays are submitted to a national panel of judges who simultaneously choose a national winner and the winner from each state.    Essays are judged based on three criteria:  Understanding of subject matter; rationale; and writing style.  National winners, their teachers and parents all are awarded prizes.
