(NAPSI)—Investing a little time and effort with students can pay big dividends—particularly when it comes to their financial education.

That’s one of the concepts behind the Capitol Hill Challenge (CHC)-a special version of the Stock Market Game. Sponsored by SIFMA and the SIFMA Foundation, CHC is designed to help students strengthen their personal financial skills and improve their knowledge of economics and business, while learning more about government.

Since it began in 2004, nearly 1,700 representatives and senators and more than 45,000 students have engaged in this special version of the Stock Market Game Program.

In the “Challenge,” teams of high school students invest a hypothetical $100,000 in stocks, bonds and mutual funds. The 2013 winners will be announced in June at a reception in Washington, D.C., where they will get to meet their member of Congress.
