On November 8, 2017, students from the BHS Business program competed in the Junior Achievement Stock Market Investor Challenge in Tulsa. Students traveled with their teachers Justin Olinghouse, Jerry Gray, and Ryan Nolan to Tulsa Tech, where the competition was held on a giant trading floor.

The event is a stock market simulation competition where students are given $500,000 of fictional money and are allowed two hours to invest in various stocks. The stock market challenge is a real-life simulation that mimics the activities on the real stock market, over a 60-day period. Students have to keep track of the stocks they buy, find a trader on the floor to sell or buy, and the team who earns the most money wins the competition. Students competed against dozens of teams from other Oklahoma schools.

The Bartlesville High School team named "The Mighty Morphin Stock Exchangers" won first place!  Congratulations to all of the team members!
