Ozark Middle School sixth grade KITES students Michael Pulliam and Dennis Nelson are the first place regional winners of the fall season middle school division of the Stock Market Game. They chose a diversified portfolio and watched it grow. The Stock Market Game is a virtual investment simulation offered by SIFMA and regionally by the University of Missouri.
"I am so glad they are learning about making money work for them," said Sandy Keith, OMS KITES teacher. "Dennis shared with me that they really didn't do much after their research, just watched it grow! Learning about investing will surely pay off for all the students in the future."
KITES — Kids In Talented Educational Studies — is Ozark's gifted program.
