Let the Games Begin! PennCFL will continue the successful Stock Market Competitions for elementary, middle, and high schools. These comprehensive financial programs and competitions are held each semester with more than $10,000 in annual prizes for students and teachers. Sponsored Counties have the most awards.
Life happens! Learning begins! In the Budget Game, students learn to manage their checking, savings, and credit card accounts, deal with life’s expected and unexpected events, and try to increase their emergency fund, credit score, net worth, and overall game score. They also work through the lessons for a complete learning experience!
Entrepreneurship! Students will research, write, and present their business ideas via a video “pitch.” Our curriculum jump-starts minds, fosters critical thinking, financial literacy, and risk management skills. Elevator speeches are uploaded to our portal, where they are rigorously reviewed. Generous prizes are awarded to the victors.
