The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Winona State University is excited to host the sixth annual Midwest Undergraduate Data Analytics Competition on April 1-2, 2017.


This competition gives students an opportunity to apply their data analysis skills to a problem of interest to a local outside organization. Students working in teams have approximately 24 hours to carry out an analysis, provide a written summary of their findings, and prepare a brief oral presentation of their results.


  1. The competition is open to any undergraduate student attending a school in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, North Dakota, or South Dakota.  
  2. Students work in teams of 3-4 people.  A faculty advisor from each participating institution is highly encouraged to attend the competition.


In addition to providing a valuable learning experience, this competition also provides a unique social opportunity for both students and faculty from various regional institutions to come together for an intense 2-day event. Also, members of the top teams each receive a cash award, and all other participants are eligible for door prizes.
