That was the challenge on Tuesday, Nov. 19, when hundreds of Nebraska students competed in the 2019 Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge, a high-action simulation of the unpredictable roller coaster that is the stock market, held on the UNL Innovation Campus in Lincoln.
Over 600 students from Nebraska, comprising 134 teams, participated in the morning and afternoon sessions. The simulation represented 60 days of stock market trading.
Wahoo Public Schools was closed to students on Nov. 19, so while most students enjoyed the opportunity to sleep in, eight WHS students jumped at the opportunity to wake early, dress up in their finest business attire, and make the trek to Lincoln to attend this annual event.
