Attorney General Conway Announces LifeSmarts Competition Winner
Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway is pleased to announce that Louisville’s Dupont Manual High School took top honors in the 10th annual LifeSmarts State Competition on Thursday, March 5 on the campus of Kentucky State University. The LifeSmarts Competition was held in partnership with the Department of Financial Institutions, the Department of Insurance, the Better Business Bureau, the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service and the Office of the Attorney General.
Dupont Manual High School’s Life Skills Team edged out Mason County High School to claim the state championship title. The team, which includes Evan Coleman, Nick LeClaire, Kayla Johnson, David Logsdon and Jesse Freeman, will represent Kentucky at the national LifeSmarts Competition in St. Louis in April. Manual teacher Robin Cash coached the team with the assistance of Salli Coleman.
LifeSmarts is a consumer education game-show style competition for high school students. Students tested their knowledge and skills by answering questions in the areas of health and safety, personal finance, environment and technology, and consumer rights and responsibilities. Teams qualified online for the chance to meet face-to-face in Frankfort.
