In the first ever 4t Nox Potfolio Management contest at OCA High School in Edmond, Oklahoma, students are playing a stock market game to learn to manage their personal finance.

Stock Trak offers a secure high school stock market game to help teachers instruct their students in personal finance. In today’s world where foreclosures and defaulting on mortgages is the norm, it’s more important than ever to teach young people the value of investing smartly.
Stock Trak’s National Stock Market Simulation program is specially designed for high school and middle school students. In this stock market simulation, students compete against each other as they manage their investment portfolios using socks, bonds and mutual funds. It is a highly customizable program with extensive control offered to the teacher. Teachers can customize start and end dates, monitor class rankings and much more.
Stock Trak also offers wide-ranging support for its teachers. Teachers can find syllabi and lesson plans on the Stock Trak website. Stock Trak’s support team is also available for support should any issues arise.
National SMS has been providing the best stock market game for high school students since 1996. Setup is quick, easy and simple to monitor. Best of all, this program is made by the same people that make university trading room software; which means students will gain important college preparatory experience.
“Stock-Trak really helped us foster greater student and faculty interaction while increasing collaboration and group dynamics among student teams,” says Professor Olga Pak. Students and teachers can practice strategies and theories learned in class in a safe, secure environment.
Stock Trak has provided virtual trading room software to top Universities all over the world, and has plans to expand their reach in the coming year.
