Guam - For the last 30 years, Junior Achievement has taught our island's youth financial literacy.

After months of planning and learning how to own and operate a business, market a product, speak to the public and raise capital, 17 student team companies will put their skills and original products to the test at this weekend's trade fair.

J.A. executive director Beth Lizama said, "Come and meet the kids get to know them see what the future of Guam is going to be in the business world."

The fair is set for Sunday, November 3rd at the Micronesia Mall Center Court and again on November 23rd at the Guam Premier Outlets.

Ultimately, students are competing to represent the island at the Asia Pacific Company of the Year Competition in February 2014.
