After the huge success of last year’s event, there was never any question– the JA of Lincoln Stock Market Challenge is coming back! On November 15th, we’ll be taking over Innovation Campus once again!
If you missed last year’s event, you can get a sense of the excitement by watching this video. Essentially, this unique day of activities gives students and adults alike the chance to experience the stock market. The afternoon is all about the students forming teams and competing in a fast-paced stock market game of buying, selling, and trading. The response last year was so overwhelming that this year we’ll be hosting two sessions for the more than 400 students expected! If you’re a teacher who would like to register teams, please contact Jessica States at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the evening, corporate teams take over at the adult event. Even with no actual stock being traded, there is no shortage of serious competition to be named the smartest investors in Lincoln! Most importantly, each corporate team who registers makes it possible for a team of students to get this hands-on financial experience.
We’re also looking for corporate sponsors who want to get involved in this innovative event. We currently have openings for a Technology Sponsor at the $5,000 level, and Opening Bell and Help Desk/Portfolio Center Sponsors, each at the $2,500 level. For all the benefit of sponsoring the Stock Market Challenge (there are many!), click here. We are also always looking for corporate teams for the evening adult event! A $1,500 Gold Table sponsor will not only get to enter one team of adults into the event, but also makes it possible for three student teams to participate!
Last year’s event had huge media coverage, and we’re looking forward to it making an even bigger splash this November!
