Penny Wars

1.2.3.4 I Declare a Penny War - Let's compete! Indiana has been divided into four sections and we're making the counties compete. Four jars will be on display so you can donate money to your section. 

Bring your spare change, go to the bank and get rolls - do what you need to do to win! 

All proceeds will benefit the IEDA Foundation

Rules

Each section will have a container. Gain points by adding PENNIES, PAPER BILLS, AND CHECKS to your jar. Lower other jar totals by adding silver coins to their jars.

Adding (+)

1 penny = 1 point
$1 bill = 100 points
$5 bill = 500 points
$10 bill = 1000 points
$20 bill = 2000 points
Checks = same as bills

Subtracting (-)

1 nickel = 5 points
1 dime = 10 points
