Thu

Where: Akerman LLP
Time: 7:30 AM ET

The Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge is a high school program with a capstone "event" in which participants embark on a fast-paced simulation of a 60-day cycle of the stock market. Teams compete by buying and selling fictitious stocks. Every 60 seconds represents one day of trading, and each day brings news from financial markets, challenging teams to analyze and decide what actions they should take. The team with the highest worth in their stock portfolio at the closing bell wins!

The student program will be run in a hybrid format this year! Stay tuned for more information.
