CAUSE (Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education - www.causeweb.org) is happy to announce the sixth annual undergraduate statistics project competition (USPROC). 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. 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. 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 class project is part of the course work (either required or optional). Some general rules applied to both competitions A project can only be submitted to either USRESP or USCLAP. A student can be an author or a co-author of only one project submitted to the two competitions
