JA Company of the Year Celebration

Oh What A Night!

Our 2024 celebration featured student companies competing to take home the title of JA Company of the Year. Event guests were able to connect with students at our open expo as they shared their experiences and sold their products. This mix of competition of cultivation created an incredible atmosphere with palpable benefits for all involved.

Thank you to all of the students, supporters, partners, and staff that showed up to encourage these incredible student businesses!
