Zeta Nu Lambda Chapter Hosts Successful Stock Market Challenge

The Zeta Nu Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., in collaboration with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (US-SEC), is thrilled to announce the resounding success of the 4th Annual ZNL Stock Market Challenge. This innovative financial literacy initiative aimed to empower students in grades 7-12 with essential investing skills.


The 4-week virtual program, held on Thursdays throughout March, provided an unparalleled opportunity for participants to delve into the world of long-term investing. Attendees, from various backgrounds and experiences, engaged in interactive workshops covering fundamental investing concepts, operated their own diversified virtual investment portfolios, and honed their financial literacy skills in a dynamic and supportive environment.


"We are thrilled with the enthusiasm and dedication displayed by all the participants throughout the Stock Market Challenge," remarked Sherlock Dow, President of the Zeta Nu Lambda Chapter. "This program not only educates students about investing but also fosters critical thinking, teamwork, and real-world problem-solving skills."


The event garnered participation from over 113 talented students and culminated in the recognition of top performers. Among the distinguished winners were:

•   Udoka Ehikwe

•   Silmary Silverio

•   Lukas Wormack

•   Martide Glaude

•   Aliyah Isola-Gbenla

•   Jane Igiri

 

These exceptional students collectively achieved a total return on investment (ROI) amounting to $23,058.87. Their outstanding performance earned them prestigious accolades along with a $100 cash prize each. Additionally, they will have the exclusive opportunity to collaborate with chapter brothers to establish an E*Trade custodial account and invest their winnings in real stocks of their choice.


"We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the winners for their remarkable achievements," added John Leverett. "Their success exemplifies the spirit of innovation, diligence, and financial acumen that we aim to cultivate through programs like the Stock Market Challenge."
