The Dollar-a-Day Challenge

This is an opportunity for students to start investing their own money. Students who participate in the Dollar-a-Day Challenge may be eligible for a Free Money Match from our donors.

Global Stock Pitch Competition

YIS’ annual flagship event is the Global Stock Pitch Competition. This competition is the culmination of investment skills gained during the year and provides High School students hands-on mentoring in financial analysis. Students (either individually or in teams of two) create a “best stock idea” and analyze a publicly traded company–sometimes meeting with company management.
