On April 9-10, four community college teams participated in a pilot ASA DataFest for Community Colleges challenge. Judges were impressed with the work of these teams. Awards were presented for Best in Show, Best Visualization, and Best Use of Statistical Analysis, and all student participants received a student membership to ASA for a year. Much thanks goes to the team faculty coaches, the volunteer mentors, and the volunteer judges who made the event possible!
With such a successful first event, we will offer this in future years, and we hope more teams will participate.
