Juniors invited to participate in accounting olympiad

2017-07-05 06:02

Learners in Gr. 9 are encou-raged to enter this year’s Junior Accounting Olympiad.

This is an initiative of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (Saica).

Olympiads are a key part of Saica’s annual school project calendar and attract the next generation of young achievers to chartered accountancy as a career of choice.

High schools wishing to enter their learners have until 4 August to submit the entries.

Participating schools are selected by the district co-ordinators of the provincial Department of Education, in conjunction with Saica.

Only 20 districts will be selected to participate nationwide and once a specific school is selected, educators are then tasked to identify five to 15 learners in Gr. 9 who they believe have the most accounting talent and enter them in the Junior Accounting Olympiad.

Prizes include tablets, cell phones and bags for the top learners in every province.

This year is the fourth edition of the Junior Accounting Olympiad.
