Elijah Watt Sells Award Winners 2019


elijah watt sells award winners 2019The AICPA has announced the Elijah Watt Sells Award winners for 2019.

To win the Elijah Watt Sells Award, a CPA Candidate must:

  • Pass all four sections of the CPA Exam the first time
  • Score an average of above a 95.5

This second part is significant because there people like this Another71 Forum poster who scored exactly 95.5 and didn't make the cut, unfortunately.

133 CPA Candidates met the criteria in 2019 out of nearly 75,000 according to the AICPA.

 
 

If any 2019 EWS Award winner is willing to be interviewed on how they studied for the CPA Exam to benefit other CPA Candidates, please email jeff@another71.com.

The NINJAs will pay you $100 for your time.
