What is, Jeopardy for College?
The $1.4 billion, 95,900-member TruMark Financial Credit Union awarded $11,400 in scholarships on May 8 at its sixth-annual Financial Jeopardy Game at The Buck Hotel in Feasterville, Pa. Grand prize winner Tim Farley of Central Bucks East High School triumphed over nine other high school seniors to win a $5,000 scholarship. He plans to attend Penn State in the fall.
The Financial Jeopardy Game, a spin-off of the long-running nightly quiz show, tested 10 students on subjects relating to personal finance. Joseph Wambach, executive director at the Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation, was the guest speaker and stressed the importance of financial literacy for young adults.
