In Search Of The State’s Smartest Consumer (Ages 12 To 18)

by Categorized: Consumer Rights, Uncategorized Date:

OK, young people, exam week is coming up. Here’s your chance to show your consumer smarts by with a state Department of Consumer Protection contest that includes a quiz and a 500-word essay.
What’s in it for you? If you’re one of the three winners, either an iPad, iPod Touch or Kindle Fire.
The contest, for state residents 12 to 18 years old, coincides with Consumer Protection Week March 2 through March 8.
Of course, you’re already familiar with the agency’s SmartConsumer.ct.gov website that includes information about scams and fraud, identity theft, payday loads and credit issues. The quiz, accessible by clicking on the banner at the top of the home page, includes 10 multiple-choice questions. Ace that and you move on to the essay. Winners will be announced in April.
