Calling All Students

on April 6, 2012

This week, in partnership with the humanitarian organization CARE, Tableau launched the Student Data Challenge. CARE is providing real household data from various villages it works with in the country of Lesotho. Don’t know much about Lesotho? Check out this BBC profile.

The contest is a 4-day challenge, from April 12-16. Tableau will provide you with a packaged workbook loaded with the data set, helpful hints, tips, and tricks. We are particularly interested in seeing the diversity of dashboards all from the same data source. You, however, may also be particular interested in some of our cash prizes.

    First- $1,250

    Second- $700

    Fan Favorite- $500
