Shamokin Area teams in both the high school and middle school divisions are the leaders after Week 3 in the Economics Pennsylvania Stock Market Game Challenge. Advisers for the teams are David Kopitsky, high school, and Stephen Keller, middle school.

The Stock Market Game Challenge is sponsored by The News-Item and Sunbury Motors.

The Stock Market Game is an award-winning educational program from EconomicsPennsylvania in which students are given a virtual cash amount of $100,000 and are encouraged to create the best-performing portfolio using a live trading stimulation. Students work in teams.

(While there are multiple teams taking part in the Stock Market Game at each participating school, EconomicsPennsylvania is reporting the dollar amount from the leading team at each school for this weekly report.)
