Registration open for JA Corporate Challenge at RA

Registration for the 2017 Junior Achievement Corporate Challenge at Road America is underway, with 24 corporate team spots available for the day-long event Thursday, Sept. 21.

The event offers four-member teams the opportunity to compete against other corporate teams in go-kart racing, pit crew tire changing, blind golf cart obstacle driving, Mario Kart video gaming, and more.

Sartori Co. Production Supervisor James Wilhite, whose team placed second in last year’s event behind Horn RV Center, found the team building experience valuable.

“The challenge gave us the chance to learn more about each other and our strengths and weaknesses. We laughed at our successes and laughed even harder at our failures,” said Wilhite.

Another Sartori team member, Mandy Kane, said she was new to the company and it helped her get to know her coworkers. “It was one of the best work experiences I’ve had.”

Many area business teams are already registered, but additional team spots are still available. The cost is $600 per team and includes lunch, access to the world-renowned Road America track and all equipment. Corporate sponsorships, which include one team registration, are also still available.

To register go to or contact Jennifer Stone at the local Junior Achievement office at (920) 458-0007.

The event proceeds provide funding for more than 6,500 students in elementary, middle and high schools throughout Sheboygan County to participate in Junior Achievement economic education taught by local business volunteers.

Junior Achievement offers classes for Sheboygan area students in Kindergarten through 12th grade and teaches entrepreneurship, financial literacy and workplace readiness, with a goal of preparing students to succeed in a global economy.

Local business professionals serve as classroom volunteers, and programs are funded by area businesses, individuals, and foundations.

Junior Achievement is the world's largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. JA programs are delivered by corporate and community volunteers, and provide relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school essential experience and skills in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. Last school year more than 167,000 students at more than 1,000 public and private schools throughout Wisconsin participated in Junior Achievement. For more information visit
