Northeast High senior wins Financial Jeopardy

TruMark Financial Credit Union hosted its annual Financial Jeopardy competition and awarded seven students scholarships totaling $10,800.

Students were given two scenarios and asked to write an essay recommending the best way to address the situations by applying their personal finance knowledge. In addition, there was a personal interview component via Zoom and a final Jeopardy question.

Edwin Santos, a senior at Northeast High School, walked away with first place, a $5,000 scholarship. He will be attending Community College of Philadelphia, where he plans to study accounting.

“The $5,000 grand prize scholarship means a year of tuition paid and it’s a weight off my chest,” Santos said.

In addition to the top three prizes, TruMark Financial awarded a $200 credit union savings account to each of the other four contestants, including Vicky Zhang, of Abraham Lincoln. ••
