DataFest is a data analysis competition organized by the American Statistical Association (ASA) and hosted at different universities nationwide. Teams of 3-5 students are given a large, complex data set and have the weekend to explore and analyze the uncharted data before presenting their findings to an audience and a panel of judges. 

Students are advised by graduate students, faculty, and working professionals which provides a great opportunity to network along with gaining analytical knowledge.

The panel of judges is comprised of employees of our corporate partners. They review the final presentations and determine the final standings. 

Cash prizes are awarded to the winners:

  • 1st place: $1000
  • 2nd place: $750
  • 3rd place: $500
