Severna Park Middle student wins essay contest

May 13, 2007

Olivia Goldberg, a Severna Park Middle School seventh-grader, has won the national InvestWrite essay competition, earning a new laptop computer and a trip with her parents to Disney World.

Her teacher, Julie Weber, will also get a laptop, a trip to the New York Stock Exchange and a subscription to the Wall Street Journal.

Olivia competed in the InvestWrite essay contest division of the Maryland Stock Market Game for middle school students and discussed the perfect stock to complement the money she is saving for college.

On Thursday, Allen Cox, coordinator of the Maryland Stock Market Game, and Foundation for Investor Education representative Kathy Floyd visited Severna Park Middle School, where another class earned a pizza party in a second category of the Stock Market Game, a competition and education program in which hundreds of students participate throughout the nation.
