On April 4, 2009, a team from Boise State University’s chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, a national professional, service, and honorary organization, competed at the Regional meeting in Seattle, Washington, in the category of Best Practices- Service Learning.
Our team, composed of James Bird, Nick Fugal, and Kristina Churikova, came in second place and received a donation from the National organization for $250. The judges included a partner from Moss Adams CPA Firm and faculty members from other universities. Bird, Fugal and Churikova presented their work on a zero-based Budgeting project with the Idaho State Police Department. The work on this project is ongoing.
