Students Go Head to Head at Gloucester County Consumer BowlLast Edited:
While the Philadelphia Eagles are still celebrating their Super Bowl LII win, students in Gloucester County are celebrating a win of their own at a different kind of bowl.
On Friday, February 9th, students from schools throughout the county went head to head in the 2018 Gloucester County Consumer Bowl.
The game show-style competition gave students a chance to test their knowledge in a variety of financial topics including financial fraud, store pricing and refund requirements, home-improvement regulations, and vehicle purchasing or leasing.
This year's winner was Washington Township High School and these Consumer Bowl champs are just happy their hard work paid off.
"It's definitely been good both getting to know the people on the team and getting to display our knowledge in a competitive environment," said Stephen Cozzone, a senior at Washing Township High School.
"I hope to develop a better understanding of consumer laws as it effects everybody and because I want to go into business I feel like this will have good business implications for me as well."
This is the second year in a row the Washington Township team has won the competition.
They will now advance to the Southern Regional Competition set to take place in April.
