Junior Achievement of Texarkana is holding a Trivia Night to raise money in support of its financial literacy programs for children. This year’s goal of $10,000 will enable the organization to teach 33 classes, reaching more than 600 area students. The event will be held at 6:30PM at 1 Oak Hill Place in Texarkana, Texas.

"JA Texarkana is trying to expand our reach and give more students the opportunity to own their economic success," says Kaitlyn Flanagan, executive director.

“A successful night of trivia will allow us to reach our goal of getting into new classrooms, all while allowing the community members a night out of having fun. Financial literacy and work readiness are two components we teach in our classes. Smart money management and increased self esteem are just naming two things our classes could give the students. This is so important to our community. It is time we invest in our youth, help give them the skills they need to be successful in our global economy."
