Special funding for our programs has been made available for Perry and Juniata County schools 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.
