Portfolio Prodigy Wins SIFMA Foundation’s InvestWrite® Competition


Charlotte Parker from John J. Daly Elementary School has developed an investment strategy primed for long-term financial success. Parker’s vision of how to invest judiciously for the future cinched her an exhilarating win in the SIFMA Foundation’s Spring 2022 InvestWrite competition. 

Competing in the elementary school division, Parker, researched and composed an impressive long-term financial plan and now she is being recognized as first place in the state of New York. 

The Spring 2022 InvestWrite competition asked 4th-12th graders: What is something you learned about investing that you didn't know before participating in The Stock Market Game. Explain how this can help your future and help others. If you were investing $100,000 to perform well over the next 30 years, what stocks, bonds, and mutual funds would you choose and why? 

Parker wowed the panel of expert judges with her thoughtful and insightful essay. 

Charlotte and her teacher, Karen Raichoudhury were honored by the SIFMA Foundation during a surprise virtual presentation with her parents, classmates, and principal on June 23, 2022. 

Congratulations Charlotte on winning first place for the elementary school division in all of New York!
