The Stock Market Game™ Volunteers

Volunteer with The Stock Market Game™. Sign Up Now!

Help students connect classroom content with a real-world experience and sharing your expertise. The Stock Market Game (SMG) gives Minnesota students in grades 4-12 the opportunity to invest a virtual $100,000 in stocks, mutual funds, and bonds. Educators incorporate SMG into their curriculum to teach their students business, math, economic, financial literacy, and critical thinking skills. Many educators utilizing SMG in their classrooms are not financial experts and rely on industry professionals to enhance their students’ learning. As a volunteer with The Stock Market Game, you can support educators’ teaching by sharing your experience and professional insight about investing, financial planning, and the stock market and economy.

As a classroom speaker, you’ll enhance students’ SMG experience by sharing your real-world perspective and stories, while helping students build business, math, economics, financial literacy, and critical-thinking skills. Your insight will complement the content educators are covering in class while students play SMG.

Contact us to learn more about volunteering as a classroom speaker for SMG.

Every Fall and Spring, SMG students are invited to submit an essay as part of the national InvestWrite essay competition through SIFMA. Members of the business community are needed to read and judge essays. Sign up now to volunteer as an InvestWrite judge!

Thanks to funding from a variety of generous sponsors, the fee to participate in The Stock Market Game is waived for schools and teachers in Minnesota. Because many schools do not have funding to cover the cost to participate, sponsorship and financial support is critical to ensuring students have access to this valuable learning experience.Contact us at to learn more about sponsoring SMG teams.SMG is supported in part by Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America, Charles Schwab Foundation, FINRA Investor Education Foundation, and RBC Wealth Management.
