2010 Consumer Bowl Competition Begins Next Week With Intra-County Competitions

NEWARK - The 14th edition of the annual Consumer Bowl competition hosted by the State Division of Consumer Affairs and local consumer affairs offices begins next week, as high school students within each of the state?s 21 counties face off in the initial round.

For the first time ever, students from every one of the state?s counties will be participating in the Consumer Bowl. A total of 93 public and private high schools are represented in this year?s competition, a record number of schools.

The Consumer Bowl begins at the county level, with each county champion then meeting its peers at regional challenges for northern, central and southern New Jersey. The three regional champions then will face off, with the winner becoming State Consumer Bowl Champion.

The Consumer Bowl is conducted in an academic game show format, with teams of students from each high school competing against each other. Each team has a teacher who acts as coach as the team studies for the county competitions.

The topics within the Consumer Bowl this year include recent headline-grabbing topics, such as Ponzi schemes, sale and purchase of securities, vehicle financing and new and used vehicle Lemon Laws, merchandise return and refund policies and overall knowledge of New Jersey?s consumer protection laws and regulations.

The Consumer Bowl is designed to educate students about their rights in the marketplace and to help them become more knowledgeable consumers.

The schedule for the county competitions is as follows:

January 26 Middlesex County Central Region
Feb. 2 Bergen County Northern Region
