 Leaders' Board - Spring 2023 

Special funding for our programs has been made available for Carbon County & more thanks to the following sponsors:

Our Personal Finance Lab includes a Personal Budgeting Game, LMS-based Curriculum, and a stock market competition.  The Stock Market Challenge offers players in grades 3-12 the opportunity to manage a hypothetical $100,000 portfolio by investing in stocks chosen from the USA markets: American, New York and NASDAQ exchanges. The competition teaches students about investing and encourages financial literacy through hands-on activities in the classroom. For more information on our partnership with these sponsors, click to view the full press release.
