Stark students to compete at Junior Achievement event

Junior Achievement of North Central Ohio students have been selected as two of 15 finalist teams to compete at the virtual Junior Achievement National Student Leadership Summit. The students will compete in the three-day event, June 22-24, against other teen entrepreneurs from across the United States.  

The Stark County students represent North Canton Hoover and Lake High Schools and founded FinLit and Fulfilled, respectively, as part of their participation in JA Company Program, in which high school students start and run a real business enterprise under the guidance of a volunteer from the local business community. The teens devise a product or service designed to fill an unmet consumer need, produce and market it, and recruit investors for their company.

The students of FinLit created Budget or Bust, a board game that teaches financial literacy concepts to middle school students. Fulfilled focused on mental health through a unique handmade journal that features daily prompts, positive quotes and challenges.

The 15 teen teams of five students each will vie for four different awards at the NSLS event. The competition’s top honor is JA Company of the Year, first-, second-, and third-place awards will be presented Livestreamed on June 24.
