Senior Sebastian Bellm, a double major in accounting and finance, won the 2015 Constitution Day Jeopardy finals at St. Bonaventure University, sponsored by the Center for Law & Society and the Office of University Relations.
In addition to bragging rights, Bellm will receive free textbooks for a semester (up to $350).
Finishing second was Varsha Parthasarathy, a sophomore biology major, and finishing third was Anneliese Quinlan, a junior political science major. They won $100 and $50 in Bona Bucks, respectively.
Constitution Day was established in 2004. Championed by the late U.S. Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), the law mandates that any educational institution that is publicly funded must provide educational programming about the American Constitution on Sept. 17.
The semifinals on Sept. 16 and finals on Sept. 17 were held in Dresser Auditorium of the Murphy Professional Building.
