Yearbook Experiment Part I

Explain the upper-graders' stock pick.
Every year at Hillwood in May, the seventh and eighth grades will participate in a Stock Pick Contest. Fifth and sixth graders can volunteer for the race. Each student has a (fake) starting price of $10,000 and should pick at least four companies to buy. Each day at 2 pm, students go to www.wsj.com and find the ending prices of the day. The person who has the most successful group of companies at the end of May gets a prize of $100. The biggest loser gets $5.

Create a list of the top books you read in class.
