Recruiting Players/Teams

Hi [name]!

This year, I’m taking the lead to recruit members of [team name] for the Junior Achievement (JA) Trivia Bowl, and I’d love for you to join us!

JA's Trivia Bowl is a new competition and fundraiser. It's all about coming together as a company to make sure that kids in our community are set up for success. This year, Junior Achievement has developed new virtual programs and real-world simulations that can be accessed in classrooms or remotely, still delivering high quality financial literacy, career readiness, and entrepreneurship programs at no cost to schools or families.

My job is to organize a team of five so that we can collectively raise funds to support JA's vital programs. On [date], JA will host a fun hour of live virtual Trivia. We need your trivia knowledge, and we need your speed to compete against other teams! 

If you’d like to join us, you can register with the link below and we can work on the next steps together.

More info about JA Trivia Bowl is available at www.PlayforJA.org. You’re also welcome to reach out to me with any questions!

Thanks so much, and I look forward to hearing from you.
