Eighth Undergraduate Statistics Project Competition Spring Deadline Nears

The ASA and Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE) announce the eighth annual Undergraduate Statistics Project Competition (USPROC). The purpose of USPROC is to encourage the development of data analysis skills, enhance presentation skills, and recognize outstanding work by undergraduate statistics students.

There are two main categories for submissions to the competition.

  • Undergraduate Statistics Class Project Competition (USCLAP)
  • This competition is for undergraduate students who are taking an applied statistics course(s) at introductory, or intermediate levels, in which a class project is part of the course work (either required or optional).

  • Undergraduate Statistics Research Project Competition (USRESP)
  • This competition is for undergraduate students who conduct research projects that are statistically related, either methodological or applied. The types of research projects may include research work from REU research projects, senior capstone research projects, or independent research projects that are not based on a specific course that students are taking.

Submission deadline: June 2017 for winter/spring projects. (The winter submission has passed). There is the option to submit slides (e.g., PowerPoint) or a three-page paper for class projects.
