The report should read as a single business document, not as a series of repetitive
directors’ reports. The report must be written by company members and should be original
and innovative in approach. A recommended approach is to ask company members to provide
details on his/her activities and then combine the information into one cohesive document. The
format should feature concise and organized business document, not a creative writing essay.
? Any interesting and unique activities undertaken by the JA Company should be included.
? Companies are strongly encouraged to include photographs of their product or service,
charts, infographics, or other appropriate visual elements.
? A PDF copy of the report must be submitted electronically to JA USA by the local JA
Area as part of the company’s competition registration.
? A maximum of 8 pages (or fewer) of 8.5 X 11 sheets are permitted. No appendices are
allowed. The minimum font size to be used is 12 point. The report must be free from any
factual, spelling, or grammatical errors and should be visually pleasing.

graphics. It should include:
o Company name
