NEWARK - Irvington High School today won the 18th Annual New Jersey Consumer Bowl, becoming State Champions by besting Governor Livingston High School and Gateway High School during the final round held at the Hughes Justice Complex in Trenton.

"The competition is over but the information instilled in the over 400 students who participated in the Consumer Bowl competition will last a lifetime," Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman said.  "We're all consumers throughout our lives, and unfortunately, we're also at risk of becoming victims of consumer fraud.  However, these students are now among our most savvy consumers and they are alert to spotting and avoiding scams in the marketplace."

A total of 84 schools competed in the 2014 Consumer Bowl that was organized by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs.  Intra-county competitions began in January, with the county champions facing off in regional competitions. Irvington High School represented Northern New Jersey, Governor Livingston High School represented Central New Jersey and Gateway High School represented Southern New Jersey.

'I commend the teachers who advised their teams throughout the Consumer Bowl competition and the school administrators for recognizing how important consumer education is.  The students who competed know our consumer protection laws and they know their rights as consumers," said Steve Lee, Acting Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs.

Consumer Bowl topics included Ponzi schemes, charitable giving, telemarketing requirements, home improvements, identity theft and automotive issues.

Any high school wishing to participate in the 2015 Consumer Bowl may call Peggy Anastos, Director of Outreach for the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, at 973-504-6241.
