"Thank you and all of the directors for the great
opportunity to be a part of the Invest Ed™ project. I wanted
to let you know how much my students and I appreciated being
a part of this team project.
It was educationally enlightening and I must say a welcomed change for me both in my Personal Finance course
and personally. I look forward to next year."
Shonta Watts, Personal Finance
Putnam City North High School
"I am so excited at the students’ enthusiasm with this project.
As for next semester, count me in. I am looking forward to doing this again. There is so much value in this
project!!! Thanks for all you do.

"I definitely plan on participating next year with
my economics class. I sent a student to curriculum contest, and he scored first. I feel like Invest Ed™
played a big part in helping him understand global economics.
Hartshorne High School
"I am using the stipend for prize money for my local
winners, so my students are excited. They had a lot of fun with the project, even though there was some
grumbling about having to do a report! Once they got into it, all my students did a really good job and many
of them are listening to the evening news and tracking prices and trends online on their own time. We are
continuing the competition until the end of school!

Chickasha High School
"One of my students who had a portfolio from last
spring came in beaming to report he knew that even though his stocks were in the red at the close of the
project last spring, he had picked a great portfolio. He informed me his portfolio was just shy of one
million dollars. So you see, for many the contest doesn’t end at the final printout. Thank Goodness!
Seiling High School
"Did I tell you about walking into the library at
the beginning bell of 1st hour to find 22 students (the entire class) already logged in and working on their
Yahoo spreadsheet. You could hear a pin drop. I had to walk out and back in again to believe it.
Math of Finance
Thomas Edison Preparatory High School Tulsa
"They are excited about the opportunity to invest money in the stock
market. It is fun to see how much they are learning! This is the first time I have been able to
take a group to use the computers and not have to worry about them getting bored and going to music sites
– they love looking up information about companies."
Yale High School
"I had NO idea how excited and interested my kids would be.
I’ve had other teachers come to me and ask about the program, and the computer teacher said she no
longer has problems having to monitor students’ free time/Internet time b/c they are on looking at
stocks. They’ve even watched some of the financial programs on CNN and news stations. So
I want you to know my kids are really pumped about this."
