JA Events are so Awesome!
JA of Greater Fairfield County EVENTS
At JA of Greater Fairfield County, 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! Whether you'd like to get involved on an individual level or as a business through event sponsorship, we offer several ways for you to support our work while having a great time!
JA High School Business Challenge
Teams of area high school students compete against each other to run the most successful virtual business and win scholarship money.
JA Stock Market Challenge
Throughout the course of this fun and high stakes competition, student teams learn firsthand how the stock market works through a virtual simulation and compete to accumulate the highest possible net worth in their investment portfolio.
Have a blast with your family, friends, or co-workers and raise money to benefit Junior Achievement!

JA Free Enterprise Hall of Fame
Junior Achievement of Greater Fairfield County inaugurated the Free Enterprise Hall of Fame in 1977 to recognize area business leaders who personify the ideals of free enterprise and who therefore are role models for the students we serve. Continuing that tradition, our current honorees are outstanding individuals who demonstrate business excellence, vision, and innovation, inspiring leadership, and community-mindedness.
