Think or Swim: Realworld Trading Challenge

l-r:Daniel Blevins, Evan Singleton and Dalton Stanley

Three EKU Finance students are about to 'Think or Swim' in a national competition. Representing Eastern Kentucky University are Daniel Blevins, Evan Singleton and Dalton Stanley in the TD Ameritrade U Think or Swim Challenge.

Think or Swim gives students the chance to apply financial knowledge learned in classrooms across the country to compete in stocks and trades. Teams are given $500,000 in virtual “AT cash”, which they can invest or spend as they like in order to make the most profits. The team with the most and best trades at the end of the competition wins prizes including up to $4,000 deposited in a TD Ameritrade brokerage account, up to $30,000 for EKU, iPads, and Amazon.com Gift Cards.

EKU's Think or Swim team is coached by Finance faculty Maggie Abney. They are competing head-to-head against 725 other teams from colleges and universities around the country. The contest ends on November 5th. Find out more at thinkorswimchallenge.com.
