The Competition

You’re invited to participate in a prediction hackathon competition sponsored by Allstate. We’ll provide you with first-hand experience leveraging your analytic and technical skills to tackle a real-world business problem by giving you a set of data—and you’ll have a week to use your skills to make a prediction from it.

Why Compete?

You’ll get to use real data to solve a business problem. You’ll have the opportunity to network with data scientists at a Fortune 100 company and see what data science roles are like at Allstate. And you’ll have fun!

The Prizes

Want more? We’re giving away cash to the students who make the most accurate prediction based on the data! $1,000 will be awarded to the first place student, $500 to second place and $100 will be awarded to the top entrant from each participating school.
