Spring 2022 Rankings
Special funding for our programs has been made available for Upper Dauphin County Schools thanks to the following sponsors:
Our sponsored Personal Finance Lab includes a Personal Budgeting Game, and LMS 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 Halifax Area, Line Mountain Area, Millersburg Area, Upper Dauphin Area, and Williams Valley School District along with private schools.
If possible, a virtual celebration will be held in May to honor the schools, teachers, and their students. They will be honored by bank executives and the PennCFL staff.
