At 3:30 PM this past Sunday, Miami University’s DataFest top winning teams were announced. This announcement came after student teams spent nearly 48 hours working with 2 gigabytes of data to derive insight.

Like last year, the competition had zero percent attrition; all 21 eligible teams submitted their findings in a written document by Sunday morning. The winning teams made it through all three rounds of judging, including a white paper, semi-final and final presentations. Cash prizes were awarded for first ($1000), second ($750), and third ($500) place.
