Bloomington students place in national essay competition

Bloomington students earned two of the top 10 places in the national InvestWrite essay competition.  


Ridgeview Elementary School fifth graders Frankie Meany (above, left) and Evie Stockinger (above, right) placed third and eighth respectively in the competition’s elementary school division.

Dimensions Academy students in Tim Kaari’s fifth grade class participate in the SIFMA Foundation’s Stock Market Game and InvestWrite essay contest each year. Students invest fictional money in the stock market and write an essay about why they chose the investments they did, how they diversified investments and what they would do in the future to continue to earn money in the stock market.

The Ridgeview students’ essays were selected from more than 3,000 entries nationally. This marks seven of the last eight years that Ridgeview students have been national award winners.
