Past Spring 2021 Rankings
Special funding for our programs has been made available for Wayne & Pike Counties thanks to the following sponsors:
Our sponsored 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, full press release.
Schools invited to participate include Canaan Christian Academy, Carbondale Area, Delaware Valley, Forest City Regional, Wallenpaupack Area, Wayne Highlands, and Western Wayne High Schools along with private school in the county.
If possible, a virtual or in person celebration will be held in May to honor the teachers, schools, and students. They will be honored by Bank Officials, local media, and the Penn CFL staff.
