JA’s 18 Under 18 Awards

Junior Achievement's JA BizTown - 636 W Southern Ave., Tempe, AZ 85282

In partnership with the Arizona Republic/azcentral, our annual JA 18 Under 18 awards program honors the most outstanding young people in Arizona. This program showcases the state’s up-and-comers who show exceptional entrepreneurial spirit, leadership, community service, and an overall extraordinary skillset. Past recipients include nonprofit founders, social media influencers, inventors and playwrights.

At a morning breakfast event in our JA BizTown, we recognize each of the 18 recipients, share their stories and celebrate all they will accomplish for our community in the future.

NOMINATIONS ARE OPEN NOW! Help us find these students! Tell us about the youth in your life who represent the future leaders, change makers and innovators in our community. It could be your child, grandchild, neighbor, student, intern, athlete, volunteer or member of your community.

If you know an impressive student under the age of 18, nominate them to be recognized in the 2019 18 Under 18 Awards. The deadline for nominations is January 16, 2019.
