JA hosted the Stock Market Challenge virtually this year!
All the fun, excitement and competition from years past, but this time...virtually!
On January 26th, Junior Achievement held its 3rd Annual Stock Market Challenge, with a fun, virtual twist. After completing JA's Take Stock In Your Future curriculum, more than 50 student teams put what they learned into action for this fun, learning experience!
Each school hosted their students. They tuned into the live emcee to hear real-time updates about the Stock Market, called in their trades to a call center and scanned a QR code to access their portfolio in real time. They experienced all of the rush, without the risk!
If you'd like to see the full production, watch the YouTube video below.
We are proud to offer this simulation to local school districts at no charge, and to provide 11th and 12th grade students with this unique opportunity.
Even though this year has been a change for us all and we've had to adapt, our mission and commitment to teaching financial literacy to students remains the same.
Our first place trophy went to Diboll ISD's Team #48 - Blue Team.
Second place went to Hudson ISD's Team #36 - Stock's Up!
Third place went to Huntington ISD's Team #24 - The Three Profiteers
