JA’s 18 Under 18 Awards

Thursday, April 27th, 2023 | 5-6:30 pm

We are excited to bring you the 2023 JA 18 Under 18 Awards! The Junior Achievement of Arizona 18 Under 18 all have something in common: They’re not waiting until they are adults to make a difference in the world. Whether it’s helping refugees or selling shoes, publishing a book, or finding a youth poet laureate, these entrepreneurs all realize the power that a single, driven person has. Their positive impatience has helped not just their school or the local community. It’s gone global.

This 6th annual JA 18 Under 18 Awards sheds light on the best and brightest Arizona has to offer. The JA 18 Under 18 represent JA students everywhere and serve as role models, leaders, and innovators in our community. Will you join us in celebrating them?

Be a part of the 2023 event, virtually or in person, to honor these 18 incredible people who are making a difference in their communities. Recipients will be awarded prizes such as cash and gift cards and will be featured by Arizona media outlets.
