The JA of Lincoln Stock Market Challenge is a truly unique event. At zero cost to them, nearly 500 local students will get to experience the stock market. On November 14th at Innovation Campus, they’ll team up (111 student teams from 26 local high schools have registered so far!) to deal with constantly changing information, analyze data, make educated decisions, and take calculated risks as they trade mock stock. At the end of it all, one team will emerge victorious and earn some serious bragging rights.
In order to keep this even free for all students and schools, we turn to our generous local businesses partners and supporters. For just $250, you can sponsor a student team. Your company name and logo will be displayed on a sign at their table during the event, and you’re welcome to attend the event and see your team(s) in action!
But this event isn’t ALL about the kids! Starting at 5:30pm on the 14th, the Corporate Event kicks off and the adults take over the stock market floor. Following cocktail hour from 5:30-6:30 pm, corporate teams will compete for the title of “Best Investors in Lincoln”! It’s an evening of (mostly) friendly competition, and there’s still time to gather some co-workers and get in on the stock market action. If you’re interested (and you should be!), call 402-467-4479 to enter your team today!
