Business scholars from UH excel in national government finance competition

A team of three University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Shidler College of Business students recently won a national government case challenge, each receiving a $1,000 scholarship award for their efforts. You-Fan Chai, Manying Huang, and Alaina Rhoades dedicated several months to analyzing data for Denver, Colorado, and creating a “Citizen-Centric Report” for the city. Chai expressed how surreal and rewarding it was to win the competition, highlighting the learning experience they gained throughout the process.

The Government Finance Case Challenge, hosted by the National Association of Government Accountants (AGA), emphasized the importance of government accountability, transparency, data transformation, and showcased potential careers in government. The team received guidance from UH Mānoa School of Accountancy Professor Jian Zhou and expressed gratitude to Pamela Young from the AGA—Hawaiʻi Chapter for her support.

The team utilized tools like Canva and CapCut to make their report visually appealing and informative. Chai encouraged other students to participate in similar competitions not just for the prize but to enhance their skills and knowledge. This marks the third UH Mānoa team in four years to achieve success at either the graduate or undergraduate level in such competitions, highlighting the university’s excellence in this area.
