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.
The JA Stock Market Challenge will have an in-person championship this year!
When: Wednesday, November 15, 2023 - Thursday, November 30, 2023
The purpose of the JA Stock Market Challenge is to give students a better understanding of trading strategies and portfolio management. Students will also learn how to use a variety of financial instruments and their risks and rewards as they apply to asset management.
