Several students from New Hampshire were chosen as the 2014 Smart Market Stock Market award winners, having the opportunity Wednesday to tour the 500-acre campus at Fidelity Investments as a reward.
Dinh joined with classmate Jade Huard to win first-place for the middle school division’s year-long stock market competition.
Teams from several schools were selected as the top winners for this year’s Smart Market program, part of the New Hampshire Union Leader’s Newspapers in Education Initiative and sponsored by the SIFMA Foundation.
This year, New Hampshire had 2,785 teams participate in the program, which included about 14,000 students statewide, she said.
Although it may have been virtual currency, it was a real world learning experience, according to Damien Cronin of Kingswood Regional High School in Wolfeboro who took home first place for the high school’s year-round diversification game.
Other top teams included students from Hampstead Academy, Lebanon Middle School, Nottingham West Elementary School, Portsmouth Middle School, Alvirne High School, Manchester High School Central, Manchester School of Technology and Concord High School.
