Lincoln school teams do well at Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge

Two Lincoln high schools finished among the top three teams at Junior Achievement of Lincoln’s Stock Market Challenge held Wednesday at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

A team from Lincoln Lutheran High School won first place, followed by teams from Hampton High School and Lincoln Southwest. All three qualified to participate in JA’s national stock market competition on May 16.

In addition, members of the Lincoln Lutheran and Hampton teams will receive scholarships to attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s College of Business.

Tyson Jenkins, JA of Lincoln’s vice president of programs and development, said about 600 students from 27 Nebraska high schools participated in the challenge, which pits teams of 4-5 students who buy and sell mock shares in an effort to build the largest portfolio over a simulated one-hour trading period.
