Congratulations to Lafayette’s Josh Arfin and Benjamin Draves for receiving an award for Best Data Preparation at the 2017 DataFest held at Wesleyan University.

DataFest is a competition held by a variety of colleges and sponsored by the ASA. In the competition, participants are given a large dataset and are challenged to find and tell an interesting story with the data. After 48 hours, teams present their findings to a group of judges and other individuals participating in the event.
