Moscow – Schools across the state were competing in a stock market simulation from StockTrak, called “How The Market Works”.  Students each manage a hypothetical investment of $100,000 in stocks, bonds, and mutual funds and make buying and trading decisions based on the stock market.  The students whose investments make the most money win. 

For the spring 2018 game, North Pocono Middle School students participated in the middle school division and students worked under the guidance of seventh grade Math teacher Donna West.  The students who placed in the top 10 out of 261 participants were Sam Battle, Peter Barbuti, Michael Kulick, Tyler Black, Joseph Mizenko and Logan Rondomanski.  

The Pennsylvania Council on Financial Literacy sponsored stock market competition offers players in grades 3-12 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.

Pennsylvania Council on Financial Literacy (PennCFL), part of the World Council on Financial Literacy, proudly sponsors this program.  The mission is to provide Pennsylvania’s K-12 students with economic, personal finance, and entrepreneurship skills that elevate their standard of living, quality of life, and professional success.

All teachers are offered free training and support.  For additional information, please contact Carolyn Shirk, Vice President at carolyn.shirk@verizon.net or call 570-975-5149.
