Junior Achievement of New Jersey Receives The Prestigious 2013 Peak Performance Team Award


National Award Recognizes Superior Performance of JA of New Jersey across Key Metrics. Junior Achievement USA® (JA) has recognized the staff and board of directors of Junior Achievement of New Jersey (JANJ) with the 2013 Peak Performance Team Award. This award was created to recognize outstanding performance by a local Junior Achievement office team during the past fiscal year.

To qualify for the award, a JA Area office had to demonstrate a strong financial position and positive student growth. Recipients recognized with the award have achieved the highest combined level of student growth, increased market share and total revenue growth. During the 2012-2013 school year, Junior Achievement of New Jersey reached 44,799 students in 71 school districts across the state.

“The board of directors and staff of Junior Achievement of New Jersey are proud to receive this recognition for working for a cause we feel passionate about—giving students knowledge and skills in financial literacy, career readiness and entrepreneurship,” said Catherine Milone, President, Junior Achievement of New Jersey. “I am so proud of our dedicated team for coming together to help more young people in our community make the connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied to the real world.”

“We recognize that these challenging times make it even more difficult to accomplish the goals and objectives of our organization,” said Jack Kosakowski, president and CEO of Junior Achievement USA. “Junior Achievement of New Jersey has shown great determination and commitment and we are excited to honor them with the Peak Performance Team Award.”
