Kelly Mill1445
Two fifth graders at Kelly Mill Elementary School were recently honored after placing nationally in a financial analytics essay contest offered by the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, or SIFMA Foundation, a financial education organization. Kendall Olson, 10, and Megha Goddu, 9, both of whom are taught by fifth grade teacher Shannon Knight, placed seventh and eighth, respectively, in the Foundation’s fall InvestWrite competition, a contest aimed at producing thoughtful analysis of “real world financial issues and situations.” The competition, which asks students about long-term saving and investing, is the culmination of SIFMA Foundation’s Stock Market Game, an “online simulation of the global capital markets,” its website says.
