“I definitely didn’t expect the event to be like this, so I think overall, I learned a lot more about how the stock market works. The competition was a big team-building thing, and I think a big part our success was keeping track of our progress.”
-Avery, Evergreen High School student
The Junior Achievement (JA) Stock Market Challenge educates high school students about investing and trading in the stock market in a hands-on, high tech simulation of the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. The program includes the JA Take Stock in Your Future curriculum prior to the event.
For Fall 2020, the JA Stock Market Challenge will be available in a gamified digital format. Students can still compete in teams virtually using their own devices.
