The best undergraduate accounting/business/financial management/public administration students in the country are invited to compete in the Sixth Annual Government Finance Case Challenge, sponsored by AGA.
Student teams will collaboratively analyze and offer a written response to a case centered on the creation of a citizen-centric report for a U.S. city, county government or a school district. The registration deadline is Friday, November 9, 2012. The competition begins on Monday, November 12. All members of the two to three highest-scoring teams will receive a scholarship to attend AGA's 11th Annual NLC: Strategic Innovation for Government Leaders, set for February 12-13, 2013 in Washington, D.C.
Teams will present their finalized solutions before a panel of federal/state/local government leaders, corporate partners and CFOs. The winning teams will be announced at the awards luncheon on the final day of the conference.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the winning team. Each student participant will receive a free one-year membership to AGA.
Students will compete with teams from various colleges around the country. The experience promises to challenge students' moral reasoning, raise their awareness of the importance of government accountability and open doors to a future career in government.
*This competition is only open to currently enrolled undergraduate students.
