A team of students from Hillary Cruz’s seventh grade civics class at Palm Pointe Educational Research School in Tradition recently won first place for the regional division of the Florida Stock Market Challenge.  This is a web-based educational tool used by thousands of students around the state each semester to help teach economics, finance, current events, math, social studies and technology. The winners will receive a $100 check for the school, a $50 gift certificate for Papa John’s Pizza, and first place certificates.
