Winners from Five College ASA DataFest 2019

We’re thrilled to announce the winners for Five College ASA DataFest 2019! This year we had a total of 11 judges spread out over 4 panels. Participants had 5 minutes to present 5 slides and 3 minutes for questions.

We awarded the following prizes:

  1. Four Special Prizes: The theme of these prizes were left at the discretion of the judges. This year the judges chose to award “Best multilevel”, “Best external data”, “Best actionable insight”, and “Best data insight” themed prizes.
  2. Four “Best in Group” Runner Up Prizes: Each of the four judging panels picked what they felt was the best presentation in their group.
  3. “Best in Show” Grand Prize: After the 4 individual panels were complete, all judges got together and chose a single Grand Prize from the 4 “Best in Show” winners. These winners receive the “Lady Data” Trophy and will have their names engraved on it!
