JA Stock Market Challenge Logo that is presented by Marathon

Featuring: JA Stock Market

JA Stock Market Challenge is a live simulation where students take what they learned in the classroom, through the JA Take Stock in your Future curriculum, and apply it to the real world. JA Areas facilitate fast-paced competitions based on a fictional marketplace. Students can compete in teams or individually, in person or remotely.

When: TBD
Where: TBD
JA Stock Market Challenge is an interactive competition where teams of high school students experience the thrill of the stock market trading floor! In this competitive learning program, students learn about the stock market, saving and investing during in-classroom programming, then compete against other high school students in an exciting one-day stock market competition.

In a high energy, fast paced simulated environment, the JA Stock Market Challenge encourages teams of 4 students to work together, leverage each others strengths and weaknesses and use critical thinking skills to put their market knowledge into practice to analyze market trends, fine tune their stock selection skills, cultivate financial acumen, embrace the risks and rewards of trading, and understand the benefits and difficulties of investing long-term.

On September 25, 2024, teams will receive 1,000,000 to invest in fictitious stock. Once the opening bell is rung, the market opens and every 60 seconds is a new trading day. After 60 days, the team with the highest ROI will be crowned the JA Stock Market Challenge Champion!
