Throughout the year, JA British Columbia (JABC) holds a number of competitions that engage students across the province in educational and inspiring activities, challenging their creative thinking and teamwork.

The JABC Business Challenge Online is an online competition where students work in teams to manage a virtual company in our simulated marketplace which responds to changing economic conditions. Student managers must out-smart other companies competing for market share and financial success.
