West Chicago Community High School finished in first place in the 27th annual Illinois LifeSmarts competition.  Members of the team included: Dana Tomasevic (captain), Christina Guo, Angie Jacobo, and Arely Jacobo.  This team also participated last year in the LifeSmarts state competition and successfully defended their state title.

West Chicago Community High School will now represent Illinois at the National LifeSmarts competition, April 27-30 in Cincinnati.  

The West Chicago LifeSmarts team is coached by Don Zabelin.  LifeSmarts, a program of the National Consumers League, tests high school student’s knowledge of financial management, technology, the environment, health & safety, and consumer rights.  

“Our students spent a great deal of time preparing for this event.  The knowledge these students gained will help them make wise choices and better understand their role as consumers,” Zabelin said. 


LifeSmarts begins as an online competition and concludes in a “game show format” face-to-face competition.  To find out more information, go to www.lifesmarts.org.
