With the help of sponsorship from Welch LLP, Wilkinson & Company LLP and Loyalist College, the competition will reward the winning team with BlackBerry PlayBooks and the title of ‘Quinte Iron Accountant 2013.’

The Accounting Profession Expo will take place alongside the competition. The Expo will feature representatives from local businesses who will be promoting the accounting field and talking with aspiring accountants about career options.
