Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences Personal Finance teacher Kathy Hahn and junior Elise Howard
Elise Howard, junior at Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences was honored as the NE Regional report winner of the Invest Ed® Students Tracking and Researching the Stock Market (STARS) financial education project at a January 11 awards ceremony at The University of Oklahoma. Elise attended with Personal Finance Teacher Kathy Hahn, mother Jean Ann Hudson, and father Brad Howard. Irving Faught, Administrator of the Oklahoma Securities Commission, awarded each regional report winner a $250 award and plaque. The overall state report winner received a $1,000 award and plaque. Teachers of each student winner received $100. This semester 1,878 Oklahoma high school students participated in this project, a record high. The Oklahoma Securities Commission and The University of Oklahoma Outreach sponsor this high school financial education project which emphasizes the importance of investing as a long-range tool and raises securities fraud awareness and prevention. Students complete a risk assessment, write investment goals, document research, create an online portfolio and maintain a tracking log, document online stock transactions, and at the project’s conclusion write a detailed report. Winners are selected based on their reports rather than ending values of their portfolios. Some student benefits are ★ to sharpen critical thinking, research and math skills, ★ to practice setting goals, meeting deadlines and writing reports, ★ to raise awareness of saving, investing and money management, and ★ to raise awareness of time value of money, compound interest, opportunity cost, diversification, and asset allocation. This project aligns with Oklahoma’s PASS Standards and will align with Common Core State Standards. The State Department of Education recognizes Invest Ed® STARS as a resource for Passport to Financial Literacy Act of 2007. A powerful need exists for students to develop an understanding of how to manage their financial futures and avoid the risk of loss due to investment fraud. A new project begins January 2014.
