Colleges Compete for Andersen Tax Challenge

The best and the brightest college students competed for top honors in the 2000 Arthur Andersen Tax Challenge® National competition, held Nov. 17-19 at its training facilities in St. Charles, Ill.

Both graduate and undergraduate teams qualified as winners, and this year's awards went to the College of William and Mary (undergraduate) and the University of Denver (graduate). Students solved real-life tax problems using a team approach that tested knowledge of the law and analytical abilities.

A $20,000 donation from the Andersen Foundation was given for first place. A $10,000 donation was awarded to Arizona State University (graduate) and Bryant College (undergraduate) for second place.
