Fairlawn Elementary fifth grade students sweep stock market challenge

Students in Shirley Helton’s fifth grade class at Fairlawn Elementary swept the fall competition of the Florida Stock Market Challenge. In the divisional section of the competition, the team placed first, second, and third. Bertony Ferinand, J. Flores, Nicholas Macias, Jacob Boyd, and Kameron Schulz placed first, Bryan Quigley, Kobe White, Jacob Ridle, Brooks Holmes, and Logan Folan took second place, and Fabian Quinteros, Roselis, Nicole Rathburn, Demitri Derice, and Holly Gamble placed third. The Stock Market Challenge is a simulation of the actual stock market with students using math and economic skills to become good consumers and producers as they buy and sell stocks in a classroom created market.
