Lemont’s contingent of 20 students dominated the 2012 Joliet Junior College Accounting Contest, which was held on JJC’s campus on April 26. Lemont students took home four of a possible six individual awards, and also helped the school to top-two finishes in both the Accounting I and Accounting II categories. Lemont had ten students compete in each of the contest’s two divisions.
Lemont swept the Accounting I division. Junior Tadas Vildziunas
and sophomore Ann Baillie
tied for top honors in the individual contest, while junior Connor Ganzer
was third. Their performances helped Lemont to a first-place finish in the Accounting I team competition as well.
Junior Zach Reitz
posted the highest score of the day, earning a 91 percent to win the Accounting II individual contest. That effort helped Lemont to a runner-up finish in the Accounting II team standings.
The annual Joliet Junior College Accounting Contest not only allows area students to compete against each other, but also provides them the opportunity to earn college credit. Students who score 75 percent or better on the exams at the competition - and who also fulfill the requirements in their Lemont High School accounting courses - earn credits through Joliet Junior College.
