The Deloitte Foundation has announced the regional winners of the Deloitte Tax Case Study Competition, an interscholastic competition that brought together nearly 60 teams from colleges and universities in 11 cities across the country in October to tackle complex tax case studies.

Teams were presented with a complex, hypothetical case study that tested their knowledge on a variety of tax topics.  Each team of four students had five hours to develop a solution based on the Tax Code and Treasury regulations.

Following the regional competition, 12 student teams were selected to advance to the national finals on November 21-23 in Orlando, Fla., where they will compete for $90,000 in individual scholarships and institutional awards.

Undergraduate Division: Brigham Young University, Georgia State University, University of Iowa, University of Northern Colorado, College of William & Mary and the University of Wisconsin -- Madison
