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

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.
