Are You Up to the Challenge?

You do not want to miss this event!

JA-Stock-MarketOn Tuesday, November 17th at Innovation Campus, we’re bringing the first ever JA Stock Market Challenge to Lincoln. This dual event with feature a student competition in the afternoon, followed by an adult competition in the evening. Both will be full of action-packed competition, pitting four-person teams against each other on the ‘trading floor.’ Each team will get $1,000,000 in mock stock and must buy and sell shares throughout the simulated 60-day trading period, with a new trading day starting every 80 seconds. Trades are reflected immediately on three large projection screens which track stock prices, show which teams are in the lead, and provide graphic depictions of stock performance. For the students, it will serve as an exciting introduction to how the stock market functions and how traders and investors fit into the system. For the adults, it’ll be an evening of friendly competition to be named the smartest investors in Lincoln!

The JA Stock Market Challenge is presented by UBS Financial Services, and we are so grateful for their support! We already have 40 high school teams signed up for the afternoon student competition from Lincoln-area high schools as well as Auburn, York, Newman Grove, and The Career Academy.
