MRHS Wins 2022 Central Regional Consumer Bowl
Marlboro High School has won the 2022 Central Regional Consumer Bowl, an educational competition that tests students’ knowledge of consumer-related information, which was held virtually on Thursday, April 28.
The Marlboro High School team competed against Voorhees High School (Hunterdon County), Hightstown High School (Mercer County), Metuchen High School (Middlesex County), Central Regional High School (Ocean County), and Governor Livingston High School (Union County) in the consumer-related game-show-style competition with questions in multiple-choice and open-ended formats to test their knowledge of various consumer-related topics such as Bureau of Securities FAQs, Credit Card Disclosure Act of 2009, elder fraud, identity theft (phishing), and more.
“We are so proud of the Marlboro team, who is representing the County in the State Championship Consumer Bowl,” said County Commissioner Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the County’s Division of Consumer Affairs. “The Consumer Bowl is a remarkable way for all of the competitors to gain awareness of consumer-related issues. Those skills will benefit participants throughout their lives.”
Team members from Marlboro High School include Jason Nemirov (captain), Harris Pavlovsky, Emma Corbin, Benjamin Katz, and Taylor Chodos (alternate). Their teachers and advisors are Nicole Bendik and Patrick Scinto.
The Marlboro High School team will now move on to the 2022 New Jersey State Consumer Bowl, which will be held on Wednesday, May 25 at the State Attorney General’s Office in Trenton. Marlboro High School will be competing against Passaic County Technical Institute (Passaic County) and Cedar Creek High School (Atlantic County).
