MFS Captures County Consumer Bowl for Fourth Time in Five Years

On February 2, the MFS Consumer Bowl team won the Burlington County Consumer Bowl for the fourth time in five years, defeating eight other schools. The first place team, coached by Science and Engineering Department Chair Dr. Barb Kreider, will now compete in the Southern Regional competition to be held at Pemberton High School on April 21.

Team members included (starting on the left, moving clockwise): Alex Horn ’17, John Barton ’17, Captain Josh Murdy ’16, and Alex Barrett ’17.

The Consumer Bowl is a quiz-show style competition in which students test their knowledge on consumer affairs. The competitors are asked a host of questions on issues affecting buyers of goods and services, such as Ponzi schemes, investment fraud, and insurance policies. The competition is sponsored by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs.
