        Blog Details

        Last year, the AICPA launched their first-ever student video competition. They are now accepting entries for this year's competition! Students can record a short video answering why they want to become a CPA, and they could win $500 to use however they wish. Entries are due by 10/8 at 2:59 pm ET.

        Here's how it works to enter:

        RECORD. Using their phone, laptop or desktop camera, handheld video recorder, or other recording device, students will film themselves answering the question “Why do you want to become a CPA?”  The AICPA created this easy-to-follow guide that will help you through the process. 

        SHARE. You’ll upload the video in a .mov or .mp4 format through the entry form. Heads up, if you're not already an AICPA Student Affiliate Member, you will need to register (for free) before accessing the entry form. It’s easy!

        WIN. After three rounds of judging, including a public vote, eligible submissions will be narrowed down to five winners who will receive $500 each. Winners are free to use their well-deserved prize however they wish.
