Members News

The Dime Bank is proud to have once again sponsored the Stock Market Challenge. This year’s first place winner in the competition was Wayne Highlands School District student Jaydan Beisner in teacher Don Burchell’s seventh grade class. Jaydan won a Chromebook along with a $100 gift certificate for her studious efforts.

The Dime Bank President and CEO stated Peter Bochnovich, “The Dime Bank is a firm advocate of financial literacy for all, but especially for our youth. We believe that educating our students provides a strong foundation for financial success throughout their lives.”

The Pennsylvania Council on Financial Literacy (PennCFL), through Brighter Financial Futures, uses The Dime Bank’s sponsorship to offer all students in grades 3-12 full access to the Personal Finance Lab, free of charge. This, web-based stock simulation platform and curriculum includes the Personal Budgeting Game, Online Learning with certifications in Personal Finance and Investing 101, plus the Stock Market Challenge. This cutting-edge, real-time stock market game is derived from Stock-Trak’s University Platform, which is used in over 80% of the top business schools in the United States.
