Each penny you donate is worth ONE point for your grade. Silver change deducts points. For example, if you want to sabotage another grade level, put your silver coins in their jar. Each nickel is minus 5 points. Each dime is minus 10, and each quarter is minus 25 points. The money that we collect will be donated to Victory Junction, a camp for children with health care needs. The winning grade level will win a special prize!
