JA Maine Titan Challenge


When: Wednesday, February 24, 2021
Where: Multiple Venues Across Maine
Time: 12:00 AM EST
 
The Titan Challenge is a day-long business strategy competition for high school students. Teams of three students work with a mentor from the business community to guide a fledgling company through the ups and downs of the market. The Titan Challenge draws on a number of skills each team member will need to become a meaningful contributor in tomorrow's workforce: creativity, finance, collaboration, strategy, leadership, and more.

2020 Statewide Sponsor:

High schools throughout Maine can participate. The event takes place during school hours on college campuses or at businesses across the state. During simulated business quarters, students decide on price, production, marketing, research and development, and charitable giving. These choices will lead to success or failure for their virtual company.

The Titan Challenge is an immersive peek into the business world. Students make meaningful connections with their business mentors and get a glimpse into the C-suite before they leave high school. They tour a college campus or local business and learn about undergraduate business programs and the importance of higher education, and picture themselves in a working environment.

2020 Hosts:
Bangor Savings Bank, Bangor

IDEXX Laboratories, Inc., Westbrook

Machias Savings Bank, Machias

Systems Engineering, Portland

Thomas College, Waterville

Tyler Technologies, Yarmouth

University of Maine, Presque Isle
