BAFEF is proud to provide ongoing support for the SIFMA Foundation, who organizes the annual InvestWrite Competition and The Stock Market Game for students in grades 4-12 throughout the US.
Congratulations to all of this year's winners!
The winners of the 2013 Northern California Regional Stock Market Game and Investwrite Competition were honored at the annual Awards Ceremony, which was held Friday, May 17th 2013 at the Giannini Auditorium in San Francisco. Nearly 100 students attended the ceremony, and enjoyed opening remarks by BAFEF President Ted Jablonski and CurrenC SF Program Manager Jacob DuMez from the Office of the Treasurer, City and County of San Francisco. All of the winning students and teams were acknowledged with awards and prizes. The students also gave inspirational acceptance speeches, highlighting what they learned from the experience. The winning team in the 15-week elementary division (both Fall and Spring Stock Market Game competitions) was Ann Fleischer's class from Tom Matsumoto Elementary in San Jose. These exceptional students had a special message for BAFEF - check out the video below!
