Penny challenge issued – and answered

June 5, 2017

The Rev. Gerry Green Jr. tries to lift his district's penny jar on stage at Annual Conference.

The pennies (and nickels, dimes, quarters, and various bills) have been counted, tabulated and scored. In short, the results of the district-on-district penny war are in:

The most points: Greater Washington

The most money raised: Cumberland-Hagerstown

The goal of a penny war, or challenge, is to collect as many pennies as possible in your jar and put as many non-pennies in everyone else’s jars. Pennies give your district positive points—while nickels, dimes, quarters, and any dollar bills take points away from the district’s total. Money is worth “points” based on its monetary value, thus:

  • Pennies = 1 point  (+100 for a roll of pennies)
  • Nickels = 5 points 
  • Dimes = 10 points 
  • Quarters = 25 points
  • $1 (bill) = 100 points
  • $5 (bill) = 500 points
  • $10 (bill) = 1,000 points
  • $20 (bill) = 2,000 points

The funds from the penny war will go to support The Rev. Adrienne Terry Fund for Affordable Housing.

Congratulations to the winning district – Greater Washington.
