Junior Achievement Announces Finalists for the Business Plan Challenge

The Finalists are in!

Junior Achievement of Alabama announces its finalists for the JA Business Plan Challenge presented by Vulcan Value Partners. The Business Plan Challenge is a scholarship competition that was created by Junior Achievement to offer young high school entrepreneurs additional feedback and guidance as they develop the business they created while participating in the JA Be Entrepreneurial program.

Six student companies were selected as finalists to compete in the Business Plan Challenge on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, at America’s First Federal Credit Union. The week prior to the event, the finalists will post commercials they have created for their business on the Junior Achievement of Alabama Facebook page for a public vote. The company with the most votes will receive the coveted People’s Choice Award.
