Over 800 San Diego County students participated in the Junior Achievement 2019-2020 school program, culminating in 100 students, representing 19 student companies,  participating in the  2020 Virtual JA Company Program Competition.

These 100 students worked through great adversity as their school locations closed and they were asked to stay at home indefinitely.  They found a way to continue business planning and development, polished their company reports and presentations, and presented to a panel of local business leaders via Zoom.

We couldn’t be more proud of these students!  All of the presentations were fantastic and professional!
