Hudson High School Students Participates in the 2022 JA Titan® National Virtual Competition
A team of Junior Achievement students from Hudson High School is participating in the 2022 JA Titan® National Virtual Competition, an online simulation that allows teens to start and run a virtual business.
The challenge, made possible through the support of the Janus Henderson Foundation, the charitable giving arm of Janus Henderson Investors, is a national competition in which high school students compete as business CEOs in the phone industry, experiencing firsthand how an organization evaluates alternatives, makes decisions, analyzes the outcomes of those decisions, and then strategizes what to do next. Student teams from across the United States compete for the chance to win prizes and be named the JA Titan® of Business. The JA Titan® National Virtual Competition takes place on May 18 and 19, 2022. Prizes will be awarded to the three top performing teams.
The JA Titan® National Virtual Competition is presented by Janus Henderson Investors, who helped launch the new JA Titan® version in 2021.
“We at Junior Achievement of North Central Ohio are incredibly excited to have a team from our community participate in this national event!” said Lori McCleese, President of JA of North Central Ohio. “JA Titan® combines business with technology, which provides a great experience for students interested in exploring what entrepreneurship is like today. The fact that this team has made it to the national competition is a testament to how much these students have learned through this program.”
With a focus on financial literacy and insights into the workforce, The JA Titan® National Virtual Competition brings business economics to life. As students work in teams, to make financial decisions about production, marketing, research and development (R&D), and corporate social responsibility (CSR), they begin to see how every choice made in an organization relates to its future success.
