HACKENSACK, NJ – On Friday, January 26th, the Bergen County Department of Public Safety’s Office of Consumer Protection hosted the annual Bergen County High School Consumer Bowl. The High School Consumer Bowl was established in 1997 as an educational competition for high school students across the state. The competition which operates in a quiz bowl format, tests students’ knowledge of the state’s consumer protection laws and regulations. Winners at the County level advance to the state regional tournament, which takes place in spring.

County Executive Jim Tedesco and the Board of County Commissioners congratulation this the 2024 Bergen County High School Consumer Bowl Champions, Rutherford High School. Rutherford High School’s team was headed by team captain Kia Parikh, along with team members Wesley Schlimer, Ian Ensuncho, Ian Oliveira, and Sarah Iorio. Rutherford’s team was advised by Rutherford High School teachers Judy Leonard and Cherryl Bott, as well as Rutherford High School Principal Frank Morano.

The County thanks to the seven high schools who participated in this year’s tournament and wishes Rutherford High School the best of luck in the state competition.

Consumer protection is integral to the County of Bergen’s mission to serve our residents. Last year, the Bergen Fights Back Consumer Protection Campaign helped to return over $728,590 in restitution to Bergen-Passaic County consumers.
