9th Annual OKC JA Investor Challenge

 

Presented by

Overview

The Junior Achievement (JA) Investor Challenge is an exciting and educational "hands-on" introduction to the stock market.

Four hundred high school students are given the chance to experience the excitement of buying and selling stock shares on a live trading floor. Each team of four students is paired with an advisor from the business community. 

Two months of trading will be simulated in only two hours, and the top three teams with the highest net-worth at the end of trading will be awarded JA Investor Challenge Medals. The top team will receive the JAIC Traveling Trophy to display at their school for 1 year.

The JA Investor Challenge provides a unique opportunity for students to learn how to work as a team, make decisions under pressure, and take calculated risks.

This event is an experiential learning opportunity that correlates to Oklahoma Financial Literacy Standard, "Saving & Investing." Students learn the risks of investing in the stock market and learn about other investing options.
