Six teams from four high schools competed in the first USI Accounting Circle's High School Case and Individual Competition. Mentors from the Accounting Circle met with the high schools and helped the students develop a solution to a real-world business problem. Teams presented their ideas to a panel of judges made up of USI faculty, business professionals, and USI students. Four teams advanced to the finalist round, where they were told of a change in the business situation. After a brief preparation time, they presented their final solutions to the judges.

Second Place: Callen Ambrose, Tony Davis, and Ben Davenport of Gibson Southern.
Third Place: Ethan Warfield and Halle Bowman from North High School.
