Northampton Area Middle School held a Penny Wars fundraiser Sept. 13-27. According to eighth-grade teacher Renee Horwath, department teams competed to see who could raise the most pennies.

Each penny was worth one point, and the team with the most points won; however, teams had the opportunity to sabotage their opposition by adding other coins and paper money to the collection containers. The value of the silver and paper money was deducted from the penny points. For example, a quarter counted as negative 25 points.
