Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame

Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame

When: Postponed Until 2021

Due to the impact and restrictions in place as a result of COVID-19, and our desire to keep guests safe, Junior Achievement of Wisconsin has elected to postpone the Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame until 2021. The selected class of laureates and awardees for 2020 will now be honored next year.

After thoughtful consideration, we understand this event is meaningful to all of those involved and the business community at large. It is a special night for all those who gather together to share in celebration and achievement of the laureates and awardees. We did not feel we could recreate the event appropriately in any other way.

We will celebrate our 2020 Young Entrepreneur of the Year award winner sponsored by EY the week of June 22. Be sure to follow Junior Achievement of Wisconsin on social media for the announcement.

P.S. Students and teachers rely on support from events such as the Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame to ensure JA educational resources are available to inspire and prepare young people for their future. Please click the link below to share a gift today.
