The Econometrics Game

The Econometrics Game is a competition where teams are given a dataset and 14 hours to devise and answer a question of economic importance. Each team must then write a comprehensive research paper. The teams judged to have the best papers are then selected to present their findings in front of a panel of judges (which in the past has included Nobel Prize winning economists). In addition to a dinner with the judges, the top team will receive iPads. The second place team will receive kindles. All teams who make it to the final round will receive signed copies of a book written by a UChicago professor.
