Students from five South Jersey high schools face off in ‘Consumer Bowl’

    What do you know about New Jersey’s consumer-protection laws?

    Probably not as much as the high schoolers who’ve been preparing for today’s High School Consumer Bowl. Students from five South Jersey high schools are competing in the bowl today to determine who’s the most market-savvy.

    Glassboro, Morrestown Friends, Oakcrest, Ocean City and Winslow high schools are represented at today’s event at Burlington County College’s Pemberton campus. They’ll test their knowledge on topics like Ponzi schemes, investment fraud and business regulations.

     

    North and Central Jersey have their own Bowls today, too, and winners will move on to the next round.
