Proudly supported by the North Penn Charitable Foundation 

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.
