Leader's Board - Spring 2022
Special funding for our programs has been made available for Schuylkill County schools thanks to the following sponsors:
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 Blue Mountain, Hazleton, Mahanoy, Minersville, North Schuylkill, Pine Grove, Pottsville, Saint Clair, Schuylkill Haven, Shenandoah, Tamaqua, Tri-Valley School Districts along with private schools.
If possible, a virtual celebration will be held in May where the bank officials and PennCFL staff will hand out the certificates and prizes.
