InvestWrite Certificate of Achievement

With your help, every student who participates in InvestWrite will get an "InvestWrite Certificate of Achievement" as recognition for their efforts. We have provided a template that you may print and complete for each participant in your class. Again, this is for all the students who participate, regardless of whether they are selected by you to be submitted to the national round of judging or not.

The certificate is provided in a PDF format. Please click the following to download and print the "InvestWrite Certificate of Achievement" for your participating students.

InvestWrite National Awards


In addition to the InvestWrite Certificate of Achievement, each participating student submission has a chance to be reviewed by the competition's first round judge, you, the teacher. Then, as the first round judge, you select the top ten responses from each class or group of participants (based on the guidelines and requirements) and then submit them electronically to the next round of judging at the national level on this website. At the national level, judging is then conducted by selected personnel from the SIFMA Foundation.

Due to the generous support of the SIFMA Foundation and SIFMA member firms, several outstanding awards are being provided for the InvestWrite National Competition. In total, each grade division will have seven finalists and one first, second, and third place winner. Awards vary slightly for each competing grade division and at each level of placement. There are three grade divisions in total: 4th-5th grade, 6th-8th grade, and 9th-12th grade.

Yes, there's something in it for everyone, including you. Take a look at the awards that you, your students, your school and even your student's parents could win at the national level (please review the tables below).

Please make sure to review the guidelines, eligibility and judging criteria in order to submit qualifying entries for national judging.

We're excited to offer you and your students a chance to win these great awards!
