Leaders' Board - Spring 2024 
Special funding for our programs has been made available for Monroe County Schools and more thanks to the following sponsor:

Our sponsored Personal Finance Lab includes both a Personal Budgeting Game and an Investing Challenge. 


The Budget Game simulates the experience of students living on their own while managing their bills, credit cards & finances. The game plays out 18-months but takes about 6-hours real time to complete.


The Investing Challenge offers students the opportunity to manage a hypothetical $100,000 portfolio by investing in stocks chosen from the American, New York and NASDAQ exchanges with live market data.

Our Entrepreneurship Pitch Competition is a business plan challenge that jump-starts minds and encourages critical thinking. Students practice the skills necessary for writing a successful business plan; written and oral communication; math proficiency; economic understanding; technological competence; business aptitude.


Our competitions teach students budgeting, investing and other financial literacy skills through hands-on learning activities in the classroom.  For more information on our partnership with these sponsors, click here to view the full press release.
