An Experience They Will Never Forget!

We are extremely proud of the two JA Fellows teams that represented Junior Achievement of South Florida at the JA National Student Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. This was the second consecutive year two teams from our area were invited to compete for "JA National Company of the Year." A total of 15 teams out of more than 500 nationwide are selected to participate. Just having two of the 15 teams there is an amazing achievement!  Thanks to Deloitte  for sponsoring the trip to D.C.

"Alpha Solutions" (NSU University School) and "NuCool" (South Broward High School) did a remarkable job presenting their companies to business leaders in our nation's capital, and had some fun too! Check out a quick highlight video of the trip, and keep an eye out for our teams at the 2:18 and 2:30 mark!
