The consumer bowl is a game show-like competition that tests high school students’ knowledge of consumer protection, and weights and measures issues.
The competition will be held in the McDaniel Integrated Learning Center and is sponsored by the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs under the Office of the Attorney General.
