Two weeks to go – submit early!

There are two weeks left in the Big Data for Social Good Challenge. Submissions are due March 3rd before 5pm ET. Find out what time that is in your city.

If you haven't created a draft yet, please do so now. And if you've just recently joined the challenge, explore the Quick-Start guide and draw some inspiration from the competition Resources.

If you still have questions - make sure you join us for tomorrow's Office Hours at 12pm ET. RSVP for the hangout now!

Submission checklist

Before you say "ship it!", make sure you run through this list:

  • Have you explained the insights gathered from the data and the process and method used in order to reach that insight, including the tools and algorithms used in your text description?
  • Have you created a submission video? Does your video clearly demonstrate how your solution works and how you got to your insight? Is it less than five minutes long? (Tip: How to make a great submission video)
  • Have you included at least one or more screenshots of your solution?
  • Did you include step-by-step testing instructions for your submission?

Be sure to read through the official rules more than once. Or better yet, have a friend or colleague provide a second pair of eyes to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

Good luck!
