High School Student Event: 1:00-3:00 PM
Adult Event: 6:00-8:00 PM (Social starts at 5:30)
Help JA bring Wall Street to Sioux Falls!
 This unique day of activities gives students and adults alike the chance to experience a live simulation of        Wall  Street Stock Exchange. The afternoon is all about the students forming teams and competing in a          fast-paced  stock market game of buying, selling, and trading.

  After completing two classroom lessons, the students meet in person to compete using  a high-tech stock market  simulation. Teams are given $1,000,000 to invest in 25 fictitious stocks. With trading days lasting just 60-90  seconds, the goal is to see the highest return in two hours by making the best decisions during the frantic 60 “days.”

 In the evening, adult participants take over, complete with heavy appetizers and open bar. Even though actual  stocks are not being traded, there is no shortage of serious competition, as four-person teams compete to be named the  smartest investors in Sioux Falls! Most importantly, each corporate team who registers makes it possible for a  team of students to get this hands-on financial experience. 

Sponsorships Are Available!

 We are looking for corporate sponsors who want to get involved in this new, innovative event. To explore the  many benefits of sponsoring the Stock Market Challenge, click here

 We are also looking for teams for the evening adult event! A team of four friends, family, or co-workers starts  at $600. A $1,500 Gold Table sponsor secures entry for one adult team, and also makes it possible for two  student teams to participate!

Get Involved!
