Legacy wins Economic Literacy Colorado Challenge

Molly McVeigh, Student Programs Director for Economic Literacy Colorado, visited Legacy High School in December to award Brayden Kuzmich FIRST place winner of the stock market exchange for the state of Colorado!

Thousands of students and over 1,400 teams competed.

He had a 20% return on his investment! (Second place was a Fairview student that had a 14% return).

Molly surprised Brayden with a $200 check and gave his teacher, Mrs. Cooper, a $100 check.

Brayden already put his check in savings - woo-hoo!

The Stock Market Challenge piqued Brayden's interest in investment and stocks- maybe even as a career path.
