Special funding for our programs has been made available for Centre County thanks to the following sponsor:
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 Bald Eagle, Bellefonte, Central Mountain, Penns Valley, Philipsburg Osceola, State College and Grace Prep High School along with other private schools in the county.
Prizes & Award Ceremony
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 celebration luncheon will be held at Penn State University Smeal School of Business Trading Room on May 9th to honor the schools, teachers and their students. They will be honored by the university, auto officials and PennCFL staff.
