Denver, Co.- It was as close to the real experience as many of them will get. Dozens of Englewood High School students got to feel what it was like to participate in a stock exchange at the DU Stock Market Challenge. The 2016 JA Stock Market Challenge in Denver. The students spend weeks honing their skills and strategies in the classroom and then compete during a mock trading day.

The JA program uses state of the art technology to give students the real-world experience of trading stocks. The EHS FBLA team consisting of Daniel Martens, Marta Mansbacher, Megan Redford and Matthew Mendez placed 2nd.  All other EHS teams place in the top 20.
