The winner will go on to represent Monmouth County in this year’s High School Consumer Bowl competition.

The Consumer Bowl tests students’ knowledge of consumer rights and issues. This year, in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, the competition will include questions about the scams consumers could face, such as dishonest home repair contractors and contributions to fake charities.

Along with these special focus questions, students will also have their knowledge of Ponzi schemes, automotive purchases, regulated businesses, gas prices, and general knowledge of the New Jersey’s consumer protection laws tested.

Competing Monmouth County high school teams include Colts Neck High School, Freehold Borough High School, Freehold Township High School, Howell High School, Keansburg High School, Manalapan High School, Marlboro High School, Middletown High School North, and St. John Vianney High School.

The Monmouth county competition begins at 9:30 a.m. Monday, March 11 at the Monmouth County Fire Academy in Freehold. A rain date of Monday, March 18 has also been set. One team will prove the victor at the March 11 competition and will then go on to represent Monmouth County in the Consumer Bowl Central Regional match scheduled for April 17. Once a winner from each region (Northern, Central and Southern) emerges, those three teams will face each other in the 17th annual New Jersey High School Consumer Bowl final competition on May 23.

The competition is organized by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs.
