The top two prizes in this year's Junior Achievement of Arizona's Student Stock Market Challenge went to team Thunder from Desert Vista High School in Ahwatukee Foothills. Nearly 400 high school students from the Valley challenged each other this month in the fifth annual competition, where teams competed to see who could grow their $500,000 mock-stock portfolio and create the highest net worth.

The Desert Vista Thunder members grew their portfolio by 314 percent. Second place in the event went to team Thunder Strike, also from Desert Vista. Third place was won by The Penguin Dancers from Corona del Sol High School in Tempe. For more information, visit www.jaaz.org.
