Answers to our most common questions
Can I participate if I am not in the U.S.?
YES, students from anywhere in the world can participate.
Can my parent serve as my advisor?
Teams are required to have one advisor, who must be a teacher/educator at the high school of their students’ team(s). The advisor is also responsible for registering the team(s) for the competition. Students must form a team with members (and an advisor) from the same high school. No exceptions. We recognize teams might want to get guidance from a parent, industry professional or other adult who may have investing experience and/or knowledge. We think that’s great! Teams are permitted to ask a parent or other adult to serve as a secondary advisor, and they must also have a primary teacher advisor. It’s important to note, however, that the Wharton Global High School Investment Competition does not permit paid advisors of ANY kind.
Can I participate if am 18 or older but still in high school?
YES, you can participate as long as you have NOT graduated high school before September 25, 2023.
Where do I submit the names of my team members?
We will not collect the names of your team members until October 30, when the midterm report is due.
