   Upcoming JA Student Programs & Events:


JA Stock Market Challenge - Thursday December 6th, 2018

The Stock Market Challenge is student competition which includes a technology based simulation of the stock market in which every 60 seconds represents a day of trading. Each team of 4 students begins with a hypothetical account balance of $500,000, the stakes are high and the competition is fierce. Join approximately 150 high school students and compete in the Student Stock Market Challenge. Experience all of the rush with none of the risk. Following the event, you will have the opportunity to review team results and analyze the impact of the team's trades. To create a team and to get your school involved please email Patty Morrrison.
