I CAN’T WAIT TO BE A CPA! BUT WHEN I’M NOT STUDYING, YOU CAN FIND ME….

Student video contest: Me in a MomentCongratulations - you’re on your way to becoming a CPA! While you probably spend a lot of your time in accounting classes, cramming for exams and preparing for your future career, you’re also so much more than just an accounting student. Being well-rounded is one of the reasons that you will excel as a CPA. Whether you have a passion for politics, enjoy traveling the world or volunteer regularly at a local charity, we want to know what makes you YOU!

Send us a 30-second video* telling us what you do in your spare time, when you’re not studying accounting. We will post the top videos to our Ohio Young CPA Facebook page, where you will have the opportunity to get some face time with OSCPA leaders, potential employers and future CPA colleagues!

3 winners will receive a free CPA Exam Review Course (A $3315 VALUE!) and $50 VISA gift card!
