Editor's Note
'Tis the season for competitions and awards, as several accounting firms and organizations give hard-working accounting and finance students a chance to win scholarships for themselves and earn awards and prestige for their schools. For those students who want to roll up their sleeves and really get a taste of what the real-life accounting profession can be like, there is the annual "Project Run With It" competition, where students work together to solve the real problems of real not-for-profit organizations.
