AGA announces second government finance case challenge

The best undergraduate accounting/financial management/business students in the country are invited to compete in the Association of Government Accountants' (AGA) Second Government Finance Case Challenge for undergraduate college students, which runs October 6–14, 2008. Student teams will collaboratively analyze and offer a written response to a case centered on how a U.S. city government implements a performance management system. The registration deadline is Friday, October 3, 2008.

All members of the two highest-scoring teams will receive a scholarship to attend AGA's National Leadership Conference, set for February 19–20, 2009, in Washington, D.C. Teams will present their solutions before a panel of federal/state/local government leaders, corporate partners, and CFOs on Thursday, February 19, 2009. The winning team will be announced at the awards luncheon on February 20, 2009. Cash prizes will be awarded to the winning team, and each student participant will receive a free one-year membership to AGA.

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.
