Fabian Hernandez-Han from Conroe rang the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange yesterday. The honor was his grand prize for winning the New York Stock Exchange's Financial Future Challenge. Hernandez-Han took first place after developing "Oint-a-Saurus", an iPhone application that teaches kids about investing.

"It's so they don't see investing as homework," said Hernandez-Han. "Rather they see it as something that is a part of their regular day."

He also took home $2,500 to jump start his stock portfolio.
