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 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 Stock Market Challenge earlier the same day, allowing the students to experience all of the rush with none of the risk. Following the event, students will have the opportunity to review their results 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 importance of team work, and will 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 brands and their 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.
