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 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.
The schools invited to participate are East Stroudsburg Area, Evergreen Community, Pleasant Valley, Pocono Mountain, Stroudsburg Area, along with other schools in Pennsylvania.
