A team of four Desert Vista High School students won first place at the Junior Achievement Student Stock Market Challenge in downtown Phoenix recently. Desert Vista juniors Jasmine Coro, Julia Hackett and Jared Bernat, along with senior Chris Kontos outperformed nearly 450 other Valley high school students at the Sheraton Phoenix Hotel in a fast-paced, interactive stock market simulation that included trades and data interpretation for 26 fictitious companies. It is the fifth consecutive year that a Desert Vista team won the championship. Coro, Hackett, Bernat and Kontos won by turning $500 start money into $1.8 million dollars, the highest net worth of any group. Business teacher Bernie O’Keefe led a Desert Vista contingent of 27 students who entered the annual competition.
