I'm hosting a virtual investment contest on Updown.com!
I'm from the Texas gulf coast so of course Spring Break is a very big event. We have 100's of thousands of people flood our city and beaches. What do tons of young, carefree, ready to party individuals equal? They equal $$$ revenue. Some local businesses rely on their spring break revenue to sustain them for the entire year.
So in the spirit of making money, belly shots, bikinis and hangovers, I started a friendly Spring Break Contest on UpDown. I have mentioned UpDown in a previous post. It is a great site to practice investing. You manage a $1,000,000 virtual portfoilio. It's free to join and depending on your performance, you can earn real money.
Come join me and see who can survive Spring Break 2011. You can still join until Feb. 20th and the contest ends on April 15th.
I have never been good at keeping secrets, so sshhh......there may even be a prize. More will be revealed about that as the contest progresses.
Here are some current standings.
