This program allows student teams from seven universities in Quebec to create and trade a virtual portfolio of $100,000. Students are provided with an educational presentation prior to the contest, which runs for nine trading weeks beginning on October 1, 2012. The winning team will have accumulated the best return while respecting the mandatory components and will receive a $10,000 prize from MX.
