Competition – ASX Schools Sharemarket Game – Game 2, 2020

While you teach your students about investing and the sharemarket, they can put into practice what they are learning by playing the ASX Schools Sharemarket Game. Students receive a virtual $50,000 they can invest over a 10 week period, in 220 companies listed on the ASX.

  • Gain a greater knowledge of economic and world events
  • Begin to learn more about investing which is beneficial for their future
