Stock Market Challenge 2024

Featuring: JA Take Stock in Your Future

Through JA Take Stock in Your Future, students discover the benefits and challenges of investing in the stock market as part of a broader, long-term investment strategy and the risks and rewards of trading. (grades 9-12) The program includes five 45- minute sessions, with additional extended learning activities and optional digital assets offered throughout, including an optional online or site-based JA Stock Market Challenge competition.

When: Thursday, September 12, 2024
Where: Harper Audi
Time: 6:00 PM ET
A Night on Wall $treet Stock Market Challenge is a technology-based simulation of the stock market in which every 60 seconds represents a day of trading. Beginning with a hypothetical account balance of $1,000,000, teams rush to amass the highest net-worth portfolio by the end of 60 days (one hour in real-time). The stakes are high and the competition is fierce!

During the simulation, teams encounter the frenzy of the stock market by placing trades with floor traders, analyzing market tips, and testing their risk tolerance. The simulation will reinforce the value of teamwork, and may just teach players a little more about being financially savvy. It's all of the rush with none of the risk! By the end of the night, supporters of this unique experience walk away having invested in far more than just another networking event. They have invested in the future. They have introduced their brand and their support to the next generation, and they have become stakeholders in the Junior Achievement mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.

Your support will help local students learn financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship skills that will prepare them for a self-sustaining future.
