Mentored Investment Challenge

  • An opportunity for a team of 3 to 5 students to partner with a finance professional who will act as investment mentors.
  • Mentors will assist the team in portfolio development and analysis.
  • Mentored Investment Challenge sessions last approximately 8 weeks.*
    • October 2 - November 30, 2017
    • February 19 - April 18, 2018
  • Two grade divisions:  grades 3 through 8 and grades 9 through 12.
  • Teams (1 per teacher) will compete with other mentored teams throughout Colorado for the top performing portfolio.
  • Teams may also participate in the regular SME Fall or Spring sessions.
  • *Because this is the first year, we have a limited number of volunteers.  Therefore, teachers may register for one team only and may participate in either the fall or spring session.  This may change throughout the year so please let us know if you would like additional teams or sessions.

If you have additional questions, please contact Lisa Vogt, Stock Market Experience Coordinator at or 303-832-4764
