For the second year in a row, Sandia High has won the competition sponsored by the Albuquerque Journal's Newspapers in Education.

For the second consecutive year, Sandia High School has won the Albuquerque Journal’s Newspapers in Education Stock Market Competition. High schools throughout the city competed.

Economic students in Steven Vigil’s class split up into teams of two or three; they then invested $10,000 in the stock market and tracked earnings for nearly three months. The team Stock Savvy, consisting of Meghan Finlayson and Veronica Martin, made a profit of over 7% on their investments, earning Mr. Vigil’s second period Economics class a Breakfast Burrito party at the end of the year.
