2018 Idaho 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.
Corporate funders sponsor their own team(s), as well as approximately 150 high school students who will complete five in-school lessons before competing in the Stock Market Challenge earlier in the same day, allowing the students to experience all of the rush with none of the risk. Following the event, students will also have the opportunity to review the game and analyze the impact of their trades.
At the end of the experience, students walk away with a sense of how the stock market works, the necessity of teamwork, and will have learned to be more financially savvy, while the corporate sponsors walk away having invested in far more than just another networking event. They have invested in the future. They have introduced their brand and support to the next generation, and they have become stakeholders in the Junior Achievement mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.
Your support will help local students learn financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship skills that will prepare them for a self-sustaining future.
