Rutherford High School students Wesley Schlimer, Ian Oliveira, Ian Ensuncho, Kia Parikh, and Sarah Iorio are the Bergen County New Jersey High School Consumer Bowl champions! The students will compete in the Northern Regional Competition in April.
Under the direction of Mrs. Judy Leonard and Ms. Cherryl Bott, Business Education teachers at RHS, the students studied crucial “real-life” consumer-related topics such credit, buying and leasing cars, cryptocurrency, fighting phone fraud, purchasing insurance, making investments, and consumer scams. During the competition, students answered consumer-related questions in a multiple choice and open-ended format.
The New Jersey High School Consumer Bowl is a program of the state Department of Law and Public Safety, Division of Consumer Affairs. It was established in 1997 to help students learn about consumer issues that will benefit them throughout their lives.
