The Rotary Challenge uses the University of Illinois Securities Exchange Simulation
investment simulation to give students practical experience with investments and to foster a degree of familiarity with the technology that dominates the business world today.
The simulation provides each student with a $1,000,000 portfolio and an on-line brokerage account from which the student buys and sells equities.
Prizes are offered for students, teachers, and schools that generate the highest rates of return on their simulated portfolios.
In spring 2007, the school prize was a package of five train tickets to Chicago so that the school could send students on a field trip to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or the Chicago Board of Trade.
