*Announcing...*



*​*
Here's what you need to do to enter:
*1)* Choose from two data sets:  “US Mass Shootings in the Past 50 Years
<https://tableau.egnyte.com/dl/qRuJYR8nUS>” and “Flight Delays from the
Year 2015 <https://tableau.egnyte.com/fl/04AJAcPucv>”. The link to the
flight delays data set also includes additional csv files with the
definitions for airport codes and airports. *Feel free to use any
additional data with the provided data sets that you think will make an
interesting story*.
*2)* Download Tableau Desktop here
<https://www.tableau.com/academic/students> (for free, with your .edu email
address!)
*3)* For resources for getting started with Tableau, there’s a great
step-by-step tutorial here
<https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/guides/get-started-tutorial/en-us/get-started-tutorial-home.html>
and
a ton of free training videos here <https://www.tableau.com/learn/training>.
Additionally, there is a huge online community base, so most answers can be
found just by Googling.
*4)* Create your visualization and publish it to Tableau Public
<https://public.tableau.com/s/>, which is the public Tableau community.
This is also a great place to get ideas about types of content you can
create. After you've published your visualization, *send your link
to LKearney at tableau.com <LKearney at tableau.com>.*

Submissions are due by *Monday, January 29th*. They will be judged for
equal parts creativity, storytelling, and analytics. Tableau will select 5
finalists to present their work at our final event, and then choose one
winner from those 5 people as the champion. There will be prizes for
finalists!

In addition, participants will have the opportunity to publish a write-up
of their findings to the Harvard Political Review (HPR) website!
