Think about your students this semester in all levels of statistics courses, as well as summer and independent research students. Competition tracks for all student levels are available.

The purpose of USPROC is to encourage the development of data analysis skills, to enhance presentation skills, and to recognize outstanding work by undergraduate statistics students.

There are two main categories for submissions to the competition.

Save the date of October 21, 2016 for the second annual electronic undergraduate statistics conference where winners will present and all students will have the opportunity to give an e-poster about their project.
