Indiana CPA Society Awards Outstanding Accounting Majors

This year's winners represent 29 colleges/universities across the state of Indiana.

Each year the Indiana CPA Society recognizes outstanding accounting majors for their leadership and academic achievement. Awards are presented based on general grade average, proficiency in English, math, speech, willingness to accept responsibility, extra-curricular activities, particularly of a leadership nature, and moral character.
