JA bigBowl
Various dates – 2019-2020
Due to the current health climate, we are making the switch to a virtual game as a part of our “play for JA model” JA triviaBowl. Please refer to the JA triviaBowl tab for more information or reach out to our events manager Molly Wick at mwick@jaum.org. We can’t wait to get back into bowling alleys again, but you can still participate and have fun with JA!


JA triviaBowl
Various dates – 2019-2020
Instead of coming together for an in-person bowling celebration, we’ll celebrate together online. Participants will be encouraged to grab their favorite snack and beverage of choice (cheers!), then dial into a screen sharing platform for a live trivia event. Trivia questions will vary from pop culture, JA curriculum, your company history, and a few random things thrown in to make us laugh! Join us and help raise money to allow more local students to benefit from JA programming.
