JA Stock Market Challenge
Presented by Northwest, is an unpredictable ride through the highs and lows of the stock market! All the energy and excitement of the stock trading floor is simulated in this innovative, high-tech event for high school students.
Students in grades 6-8 will have the opportunity to explore high-growth, high-demand careers and what it takes to attain (and keep!) those jobs.
Proceeds from the JA Bowl-A-Thon help JA to provide financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurial programs to 16,089 local students.
