Winners of Financial Jeopardy

College-bound Philadelphia Area High School Students Win $10,000 in Scholarships 

TruMark Financial® Credit Union hosted its 16th annual Financial Jeopardy competition on May 3, 2023, at TruMark Financial Headquarters, Fort Washington, Pa. The Financial Jeopardy competition, a spin-off of the long-running nightly quiz show that airs on 6ABC in Philadelphia, tested students’ personal finance knowledge in categories such as banking, credit, taxes, budgeting, and investments. To enter the competition, local teachers referred students who exemplified financial knowledge to compete to win college scholarships to assist with their education expenses. TruMark Financial’s Chuck Sanford hosted the event which included three initial introductory rounds, a Double Jeopardy round, and a final round to determine the winner. 

At the end of the competition, TruMark Financial awarded three scholarships – a $5,000 grand prize, a $3,000 second prize, and a $2,000 third prize – to the students who fared best: 

  • 1st Place: Katie Barnes, Cheltenham High School $5,000 Scholarship 

  • 2nd Place: Daniel Schoen, Neshaminy High School $3,000 Scholarship 

  • 3rd Place: Benjamin Broker, Upper Dublin High School $2,000 

 

In addition to the top three prizes, TruMark Financial awarded $200 to each of the other contestants:  

  • Isaiah Moore, Northeast High School  

  • Ethan Markow, Plymouth Whitemarsh High School  

  • Nicolas Buono, William Tennent High School  

"We're thrilled to announce the winners of this year's TruMark Financial Jeopardy event. We had an impressive group of students who demonstrated exceptional financial knowledge and dedication to their education," said Kelly Botti, CEO of TruMark Financial. “This is one of many ways TruMark Financial is showcasing our commitment to financial education initiatives for students and providing them with the tools and opportunities to succeed."
