Leaders' Board - Spring 2022
Special funding for our programs has been made available for Carbon County 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.
The schools invited to participate are Jim Thorpe Area, Lehighton Area, Palmerton Area, Panther Valley, & Weatherly Area, Tamaqua Area, along with other private schools in the county.
If possible, a virtual celebration will be held in May to honor the schools, teachers, and their students. They will be honored by Bank officials and the PennCFL staff.
