Some local fith graders representing Congressman Larry Bucshon in a stock market challenge.

He stopped by Caze Elementary to speak to the students participating in the nationwide Capital Hill Challenge stock market game.

Students are given $100,000 in fake money to  invest in the stock market.

The top ten teams in the country at the end will travel to the New York Stock Exchange.

"I don't give stock tips. I told them at the end if they're one of the top ten teams, I should look up the top ten teams and people should get advice from them," said Larry Bucshon.

Bucshon says this teaches students how to manage money and avoid getting into fiscal trouble.

The game ends in May.
