YIS’ annual flagship event is the Global Stock Pitch Competition. This competition is the culmination of investment skills gained during the year and provides High School students hands-on mentoring in financial analysis.
Students (either individually or in teams of two) create a “best stock idea” and analyze a publicly-traded company–sometimes meeting with company management. Each student/team writes a report on their chosen company with a “Buy” or “Sell” recommendation and then presents and defends their analysis in a written report and brief to a panel of University Professors and Industry Professionals.
All of our events will be held virtually using our Zoom Video platform and submitted YouTube videos of student’s presentations. State/Territory events will be conducted via Zoom Video (10 or fewer students) or via Youtube Video entries (11 or more students). State winners will be selected and will compete regionally in online events for the East Coast, Midwest Regions 1 & 2, West Coast, Asia, Europe & International Open.
Regional winners will be invited to participate in the Global Stock Pitch Competition (Salt Lake City, Utah) event where students will be awarded 1st-3rd place prizes.
The deadline to register for State Stock Pitch Competitions is April 4, 2022.
