Washington, D.C.- Today, Congressman Howard "Buck" McKeon welcomed a group of students from West Ranch High School in Santa Clarita to the Capitol to celebrate their exemplary 3rd place showing in the 2012 National Capitol Hill Challenge Stock Market Game.

The Capitol Hill Challenge is open to high school students across the country where students participate in the Stock Market GameTM over a 14-week period. The competition uses the curriculum-based Stock Market GameTM, a program of the SIFMA Foundation for Investor Education, to help students develop math, economic, and research skills associated with long-term saving and investing.

It also helps them understand how the capital markets work. Over the course of the competition, teams of three to five students at more than 200 schools across the country each invested a hypothetical $100,000 portfolio in real-world stocks, bonds and mutual funds. The five teams with the highest return on their portfolio won a trip to Washington, D.C.

"Meeting promising and engaged young folks is one of the best parts of my job," said Congressman McKeon. "These kids are incredibly talented and I can tell that they will all have very bright futures. They should be very proud of their accomplishments, not just in this competition but in all that they have achieved in their academic careers so far.

"Congratulations to the West Ranch High School students on your fantastic achievement and thank you for meeting me in our nation's capitol!"
