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.

Where: University of Wisconsin - Green Bay | 2420 Nicolet Drive | Green Bay, WI
Time: 8:00 AM CT
JA Stock Market Challenge is a high-energy learning event designed to simulate a real life trading floor where students take what they learned through the JA Take Stock in your Future curriculum and apply it to the real world. Student teams work together, leverage each other’s strengths, and use critical thinking skills while analyzing news articles and data during a high stakes and fierce competition for prizes.

Each team is issued $250,000 of “mock stock” and must buy and sell shares in fictitious companies throughout a simulated 60-day trading period. Trading is fast, fun, and furious with a new day starting every 60 seconds! The goal of each team is to achieve the greatest rate of return on investment by the end of the simulated trading session.
