The JA Stock Market Challenge is a technology based simulation of the stock market in which every 60 seconds represents a day of trading. Beginning with a hypothetical account balance of $500,000, the stakes are high and the competition is fierce. Corporate funders sponsor their own team(s) as well as approximately 150 high school students who will complete five in-school lessons on investments before competing in the Student JA Stock Market Challenge earlier the same day, allowing the students to experience all of the rush with none of the risk. Your support will help local students learn financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship skills that will prepare them for a self-sustaining future. By participating in this VIP corporate event, you are supporting the Junior Achievement mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.
