NVHS DECA Member Earns Recognition in Stock Market Game
Calvin Yi, Neuqua Valley DECA member, received 12th place recognition in the central region during the 2021-2022 DECA Stock Market Game, an online competition hosted by DECA Inc. and administered by the SIFMA Foundation.
DECA members were challenged with developing and managing a virtual investment portfolio of stocks, bonds and mutual funds, with the aim of increasing the value of their portfolio, while maintaining its diversity. Rankings were based on the percentage growth above or below the value of the S&P 500.
The top 25 teams in each DECA region qualify to present their portfolio during the 2022 DECA International Career Development Conference (ICDC) this April in Atlanta, Georgia. In the ICDC competitive event, teams will defend their investment decisions with a written document describing their project and a 15-minute oral presentation.
DECA’s online events provide opportunities for students to participate in online simulations to learn how to invest in the stock market, manage personal finances, or operate a business venture.
