Given the current COVID-19 pandemic and stay-at-home/social distancing orders from both the state and federal government, Junior Achievement has made the extremely difficult decision to cancel all of our spring events.
While the JA Stock Market Challenge has been canceled Teachers are still able to virtually deliver the program and have students compete against their classmates in a virtual Stock Market simulation. We could not offer this without the support of our many sponsors so THANK YOU!!!
What is the JA Stock Market Challenge?
The Junior Achievement (JA) Stock Market Challenge, presented by SEFCU, 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. There are 5 in-class sessions led by the teacher and the opportunity to have a volunteer come into the classroom for 1-2 visits.
