Leaders' Board - Spring 2022
Special funding for our programs has been made available for Harrisburg City School District thanks to the following sponsors:
Our sponsored Personal Finance Lab includes a Personal Budgeting Game, and LMS Curriculum and 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 here for the press release.
The schools invited to participate are Ben Franklin (K–8), Camp Curtin (K–4), Downey (K–8), Foose (K–4), Harrisburg High School (9–12), SciTech Campus (9–12), Marshall (K–8), Math and Science Academy (5–8), Melrose (K–8), Rowland (5–8), and Scott (K–4).
If possible, a virtual celebration will be held in May to honor the schools, teachers, and their students. They will be honored by bank executives and the Penn CFL staff.
