MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, March 2, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — StockTrak’s PersonalFinanceLab.com website offers personal finance and business educators a unique and customizable tool to teach students how to become financially intelligent adults. PersonalFinanceLab’s budget game, stock market game, customizable curriculum, and certifications are a perfect addition to the classroom!
Teachers can start the conversation now, when they register students for the FREE Spring Financial Literacy Challenge!
The contest runs from March 28 to April 29, 2022. It’s the perfect opportunity for teachers to test their students’ financial knowledge, simplify complex topics on how to build wealth, and even win prizes! Students will love the friendly competition, bragging rights, and lifelong learning of useful skills, without realizing they’re in a college setting.
While participating in the Spring Financial Literacy Challenge, students practice managing a monthly budget, balancing planned and unplanned expenses, and managing a virtual investment portfolio. Students can invest in US stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.
The Budget Game replicates the daunting transition from student to employee, allowing young adults to test their spending and saving habits, without losing real money. While the Stock Game allows students to realize the balance between risk and return.
These concepts are nearly impossible for single teachers to explain in a semester, but with PersonalFinanceLab, students can learn by doing!
The PersonalFiananceLab Spring Financial Literacy Challenge gives kindergarten students the opportunity to make mistakes with money and understand the benefits and consequences of being responsible for their own financial well-being!
Teachers can register their students for the Spring Financial Literacy Challenge here.
