Safety is a vital priority for Junior Achievement of Central Ohio (JA). JA requests that all guests wear masks when not actively eating and drinking at the Central Ohio Hall of Fame. Masks will be available on-site. We ask that all Hall of Fame guests be vaccinated against COVID-19.
All registered attendees will receive regular email communications with pertinent information following their registration and will be updated with any additional safety protocols over the next few weeks if new guidelines and mandates are put into place.
We understand that not everyone will be comfortable attending an in-person event. We will be celebrating virtually on December 1, 2021 for the entire community.
Join us for the 34th Annual Junior Achievement Central Ohio Business Hall of Fame, as we honor forward-thinking entrepreneurs and accomplished community leaders for their contributions to our region’s economic development and their commitment to business excellence.
We look forward to honoring our 2021 Laureates and celebrating the year-round work of Junior Achievement with you in November! We are so grateful for the support of our sponsors as we continue to innovate and meet students where they are both inside and outside of the classroom.
