Leaders' Board - Spring 2022
Special funding for our programs has been made available for Indiana County thanks to the following sponsor:
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, View full press release.
The schools invited to participate are River Valley, Homer-Center, Indiana Area, Marion Center Area, Penns Manor Area, Purchase Line, United, & more along with other private schools.
