2024 JAH Stock Market Challenge

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: Tuesday, October 22, 2024
Where: Rogalski Center Ballroom, St. Ambrose University
Time: 9:45 AM CT
Rogalski Center Ballroom, St. Ambrose University
5:00 PM - 7:15 PM

Using a simulated trading environment, teams of 3-4 players will experience the fast-paced thrill of the stock exchange. Once the opening bell is rung, the market opens and every 60 seconds is a new trading day! With 60 trading days, each day brings news through “Hot Tips” and “News Releases” from the financial markets, challenging teams to evaluate trends and compete for the attention of floor traders to make trades, buy, and sell shares. Due to the volatile market and the high-energy of the competition, teams will be pushed to the brink. Trading is fast, fun, and furious! The team with the highest ROI at the end of 60 days will be crowned the JA Stock Market Champion!

Prepare for the JA Stock Market Challenge with JA Take Stock in Your Future™. Students must complete a minimum of three lessons prior to the competition.
