Capitol Hill Challenge Stock Market Game
The SIFMA Foundation would like to invite you to apply to participate in the SIFMA Foundation’s 2018 Capitol Hill Challenge™ presented by the Charles Schwab Foundation.
The Capitol Hill Challenge™ (CHC) is a special edition of The Stock Market Game™(SMG) program that matches up to 10 public school teams (middle or high school; 3-5 students per team) with your local member of Congress. The CHC works much like the SMG you’ve come to know and love, but in the CHC, your students compete against teams across the country that are matched to their local members of Congress. The 10 teams with the nationally top-ranked portfolios (one winning team per school, one winning team per MOC) will win an all-expense paid trip to Washington, DC for an awards ceremony on Capitol Hill and to meet their Members of Congress.
CHC is offered by invitation from the SIFMA Foundation, with priority consideration for registration given to public schools. If you are a public middle school teacher or public high school teacher interested in being considered for participation in the 2018 CHC, please complete
the Teacher Registration Form via this link: https://sifma.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_25bScfYAmKLlZHL OR download the Teacher Registration Form here and return:
• By FAX to 212-313-1324
• By scan and email to CapitolHill@sifma.org
The SIFMA Foundation will contact you with an invitation if you have been selected and will then register your student teams for participation. Please note that to register you must be employed as a teacher or senior administrator at the school you are representing, and your student teams must attend the same school. Completion of this form does not guarantee acceptance into the CHC competition.
CHC 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.
To find or verify your school’s current Member of Congress, go to: www.house.gov. (Enter your zip code in the upper “Right” hand side to “Find Your Representative”).
Details about the CHC program are available online at: https://www.stockmarketgame.org/capitol-hill-challenge.html.
This special opportunity is by invitation only and will be filled quickly. Please respond quickly as participation in CHC is limited and your slot may get filled. If you have any questions, please contact us at CapitolHill@sifma.org.
