Shenandoah County Public School’s Honey Run Elementary placed first in Virginia at the elementary level for the Fall 2023 competition of the Stock Market Game.

The fifth grade students also finished 16th out of 137 schools among all grade levels in the competition.

Gifted Resource Specialist Ashley Showalter led the fifth graders on the challenge which is designed to “build a fundamental understanding of investing while providing students with real-world skills and practice in math, English, language arts, economics, and other subjects.”

The students and Ms. Showalter will be recognized at the State Stock Market Game Awards Luncheon in May at the Federal Reserve Bank in Richmond.
