Each audition slot between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. in the UC ballrooms is 10-minutes long and seen by a panel of judges to decide the final lineup on Jan. 16.

A team of five accounting students from the University of Northern Colorado's Monfort College of Business won the 2013 Deloitte FanTAXtic Regional Case Competition held Nov. 1-2 in Chicago, beating collegiate teams from Michigan State, DePaul, Northern Illinois, Loyola and the University of Illinois.
The teams solved a complex tax case and presented it to a panel of judges made up of tax professionals from Deloitte's offices.
The UNC team of seniors Katelyn Keith, Erick Leonard and Joshua Ramirez, and sophomores Kacie Bohm and Matthew Schoewe will travel to the national FanTAXtic competition Jan. 17-19 in Dallas. They'll be accompanied by their faculty advisor, Ryan Cahalan, an assistant professor of Accounting..
There they'll go up against the winners of eight other regional contests, including schools such as Fordham, BYU, Texas A&M, Southern Cal, William & Mary, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Teams, which will have their travel, meals and lodging provided by Deloitte, will vie for $50,000 in student and scholarships..
The Deloitte FanTAXtic national planning team, in an email message announcing the regional winners, wrote, "We were genuinely impressed by the quality of presentations submitted by the participating teams, and hope your students found the experience to be a good investment of their time."
Deloitte FanTAXtic is an interactive program sponsored by Deloitte and the Deloitte Foundation to familiarize students with the tax profession early in their careers, with local Deloitte tax professionals offering support and guidance.
