Leaders' Board - Spring 2023
Special funding for our programs has been made available for Wayne & Pike Counties and more thanks to the following sponsors:
Our sponsored 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 here for the full press release.
Schools invited to participate include Canaan Christian Academy, Carbondale Area, Delaware Valley, Forest City Regional, North Pocono, Susquehanna Community, Wallenpaupack Area, Wayne Highlands, and Western Wayne High Schools along with other schools in Pennsylvania.
