Save the date for Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge and Career Exploration Event

December 7, 2017 at 5:29 pm

Save the date for April 3, 2018, for Junior Achievement’s annual Stock Market Challenge, presented by CFA Society of Iowa. This exciting, fast-paced competition gives high school students the chance to experience a simulation of a 60-day cycle of the stock market and its function of buying, selling, analysis and risk. Every 60 seconds represents a day of trading. The goal of each team (3-4 players) is to accumulate the highest possible net worth for their investment portfolio at the close of trading.

New this year, the day will also include a career exploration fair – where students can meet with company representatives from a variety of industries to learn more about job opportunities available in those industries.
