A team of students from the University of Missouri Trulaske College of Business is hoping that a "Hunger Games"-themed video will help ensure the odds are ever in their favor of making it to the finals of a PricewaterhouseCoopers tax challenge competition.

Last month, team Green Machine — Xiaoke "Jessica" Cui and Megan Libbert, both graduate accountancy students; Hai Kim, a senior accountancy major; Kenny Cygeirt, a junior business administration major; and Hanna Ingram, a freshman business major — competed against teams from other UM System campuses in Challenge, PricewaterhouseCoopers' tax competition.

Their winning presentation was recorded and sent to a panel of judges who selected finalists, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers' website.

The judges selected four finalists — teams from the University of Delaware, the University of Florida, the University of Southern California and the University of Virginia — and left the fifth finalist spot to be determined by a vote on Facebook. Green Machine, the MU team, is up against other semifinalists — teams from the University of Bentley in Waltham, Mass., and the University of Georgia. Read more
