JA Events are so Awesome!
JA of Idaho EVENTS
At JA of Idaho, we host several events throughout the year to raise money to support our programming. These events also engage the community in our efforts to reach students!
JA Stock Market Challenge
The 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 competition is fierce.
This year over 500 Idaho students will have the opportunity to participate in this event.
Inspire is Junior Achievement of Idaho's career exploration day which introduces 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students to the vast variety of local and state career opportunities. This career exploration day will enable students to interact with business representatives and see displays from Idaho companies.
JA of Idaho PAST EVENTS
The Blockbuster Bowl (Achieve-A-Bowl) is JA's biggest fundraiser of the year. Hundreds of participants from local companies bowl each year to help JA provide financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurial programs to local students.
