In January 2018 we launched a competition among Wichita State University students challenging them to submit their prediction for the closing value of the S&P 500 on August 31st, 2018. We would like to recognize the following individual for providing the most accurate prediction for this challenge. Congratulations, Vyvian Koh! He was recognized on stage at the 39th Annual Kansas Economic Outlook Conference on Thursday, October 4, 2018.
In addition, this year we also asked the business community for their predictions. Ryan Schrack, Director of Community Development for the city of Valley Center, won this year and was also recognized onstage during the ceremony.
