What is STARS?

Invest Ed STARS (Students Tracking and Researching the Stock Market) is a project of the Oklahoma Securities Commission and Oklahoma Department of Securities that began in 2005 and has reached over 30,000 students. The STARS project is designed to enhance existing curriculum and promote the financial education of Oklahoma students.

The STARS project has been developed as a financial planning and fraud awareness education program for students in grades 9-12. The STARS project teaches students to research investments, assess risk, set investment goals, and create and track stock portfolios online.

What is required to teach STARS?

To teach the STARS project Oklahoma teachers are required to attend one of the free STARS teacher training workshops. We offer Teacher Institutes each summer and webinars for our trained teacher's continuing education.

STARS Awards

All STARS students are required to write a report at the end of the project. STARS trained teachers submit up to two reports each semester to be considered for an award. The STARS project provides a monetary award to 5 regional winners and 1 state winner each semester. All 6 winners are recognized at an awards ceremony held at the end of each semester.

See our Regions map to determine which region your school is located in.
