Take Stock in Kentucky Teacher Guide

Take Stock in Kentucky competition is now open to all Kentucky students - grades 4-12.  In this Kentucky Stock Market Game competition, students use the same Internet simulation as the Stock Market Game, but will invest only in Kentucky companies. Teams of 2-6 students will build a portfolio of Kentucky investments starting with $100,000 in imaginary funds over a period of 10 weeks.  The companies they will research and invest in are headquartered in Kentucky, companies that have state offices or subsidiaries, or companies that are of special interest to the economy of Kentucky.  Use with your curriculum unit on Kentucky!!

We have kept the list to around 200 stocks - in order for students to be able to focus on a relatively small group of companies on which to base their research. This is a great opportunity for students to learn about business in their local community and Kentucky economics.

Teachers registering for the Take Stock in Kentucky program can print a copy of the "Take Stock in Kentucky" curriculum with 16 easy to use lessons focused on research of the Kentucky economy and business and on Kentucky Economics Core Content for grades 4-12, covering concepts like opportunity cost, producers, consumers, scarcity, interdependence, markets, profit, and more! The link to the document will be in the introductory email from KCEE.

Competitions and Awards! Teams will be recognized by statewide and regionally.
