Leaders' Board - Spring 2022
Special funding for our programs has been made available for Perry and Juniata County schools 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, click to view the full press release.
The schools invited to participate are Newport, Greenwood, West Perry, Susquenita, and Juniata School Districts along with private schools.
If possible, a virtual or in person celebration will be held in May to honor schools, teachers, and their students. They will be honored by bank officials and PennCFL Staff.
