The College Equity Research Contest that Awards Up to $7,500 to Winning Student(s) and $5,000 to School
Boca Raton, Fl. November 1, 2021, Noble Capital Markets today announced the launch of its third annual Channelchek College Challenge. The equity research report contest is designed to encourage college students to explore the field of equity research and analysis. The prize package includes cash for both winning student(s) and the winner’s school, a paid internship with Noble Capital Markets, an award ceremony that will be recorded and played on the Nasdaq tower in New York, and more.
Participants are asked to prepare a “Wall Street-style” equity research report on one of the more than 6,000 public small and microcap companies found on channelchek.com. Channelchek is an investor resource featuring news and commentaries, equity research, live and recorded management discussions, company and stock market data, plus exclusive reports on select industries.
The student(s) that register for this year’s College Challenge will be competing for up to $7,500 paid to them; their college will receive an additional $5,000. The student(s) will also be offered a paid internship with Noble Capital Markets. The planned award ceremony this year will be online as possible restrictions on travel to South Florida still threaten and can’t be known looking out as far as early 2022. However, a video of the award presentation ceremony will be produced and featured on the NASDAQ Tower in New York City’s Times Square.
The College Challenge has been made possible with the support of the following sponsors: Channelchek, Salem Media Group, Kelly Services, NASDAQ, The College Investor, and E.W. Scripps, known for its National Spelling Bee. Contact Channelchek for information on sponsorship opportunities for the third College Challenge.
Mike Kupinski, Noble’s Director of Research, was active in providing guidance and judging last year’s College Challenge; he stated, “It’s exciting to be involved in this competition's third year. Last year the students clearly took the competition seriously with reports that were well written, with thorough analysis. The winners, Melissa Mueller and Benjamin Trussel from the University of Tennessee are examples of the high level of talent present within the college community today.” Looking toward this year's College Challenge, Kupinski said, “I hope that the competition will incent more students to be inspired to seek careers in equity research, as well as the financial industry.”
