Invitational, a competition for financial planning students,
as National Champions. The three financial planning and accounting
double majors were notified in March 2001 that they qualified

championship by placing first in the written case competition
and oral presentation and second in the quiz show competition.

Hays was awarded the grand prize of $10,000 in scholarship money
to be used for its financial planning program. The students
each won $800.
