Government Finance Case Challenge

AGA invites currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students to compete in a virtual Government Finance Case Challenge. Student teams have two and a half weeks to analyze data for an AGA–specified U.S. state, city or county government and develop a Citizen-Centric Report (CCR).

Submissions will be judged by a panel of government finance experts and the top teams present their findings via video.

The experience challenges students' moral reasoning, raises their awareness of the importance of accountability and opens doors to a career in government.

Fall 2020

Team registrations due by noon ET
Friday, Sept. 18.

Winning team student members each receive a $1,000 scholarship!

Undergraduate teams will compete against undergraduate teams while graduate teams will compete against graduate teams.
