Each spring, the high school students in the program meet at the JA Company Program® Regional Competition to showcase their work in creating new products and companies and demonstrate their skills in a variety of activities.
 
Including an entrepreneurship expo, interviews, presentations, and more, the students not only highlight their accomplishments but their professional growth through a daylong competition. This event is held at the Microsoft Technology Center in Malvern, PA. This gives the students the opportunity to explore and interact with this unique space.
