JA Stock Market Challenge

Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort - 5001 N Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale 85250

October 19, 2020

As of today, the JA Stock Market Challenge will continue as planned with the in-person event similar to years past. We are excited to host you on October 19th, 2020. Please note: we are continually assessing circumstances and modifying events as needed to ensure the safest way for the JA family to connect.

If there are any changes, we will relay this information quickly. As we know, so will you. Rest assured: we will not cancel an event entirely – rather, we will modify to a virtual experience that still offers community connection. We know great things happen when we come together.

Please check back here for updates or reach out to us at any time (Sarah Amaral, Special Events Senior Manager, at SarahA@jaaz.org / 480.219.0226).   

Thank you for your support. JA’s programs are more important than ever and we are grateful to have your partnership in our mission to prepare AZ kids to succeed in work and life.



Experience the thrill of the trading floor at Junior Achievement’s JA Stock Market Challenge on October 19, 2020 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort.

The JA Stock Market Challenge is a unique and dynamic event that has professionals from generous companies all over Arizona coming together for a night of food, drink, fun and friendly competition, all while supporting important education for Arizona students. Increase your company’s visibility and network with other top valley companies as you share in the excitement of this one of a kind evening.

Proceeds from the JA® Stock Market Challenge make it possible for 400 high school students to participate in the JA Student Stock Market Challenge that takes place earlier that same day.

Don’t miss this exclusive event where teams are issued $500,000 to buy mock stock in 30 fictitious companies. Once the opening bell is rung, the market opens & every 60-90 seconds is a new trading day!

Due to the volatile market, and the game’s frantic pace, teams are challenged as they compete for the largest portfolio by the end of trading. Depending on your team’s level of involvement, get better positions on the floor, tips about companies performance and opportunities to see your team standings.

For more information on how you can participate, including sponsorships at the 2020 event, please contact Sarah Amaral, Special Events Senior Manager, at SarahA@jaaz.org / 480.219.0226.
