Our sponsored stock market competition 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, along with other private schools in the county.

The top game from each middle and high school will win $25.
The top three middle and high games in this county will win prizes starting at $100 for the student and $25 for the teacher.
A celebratory luncheon will be held on May 12th to honor the schools, teachers, and their students. They will be honored by Bank officials and the PennCFL staff.
