2018 Harvard Political Analytics Hackathon
This form is to any Harvard undergraduate who is interested in participating in the 2018 Political Analytics Hackathon on November 15 and 16. The deadline for filling out this application is Friday, October 5.

This will be the second year we've done the hackathon, and it's somewhat unique in how it's organized. The goal of the event is to put together teams that are a mixture of political practitioners/consultants, folks from the media, researchers who work on topics related to elections and campaigns, and undergraduates with political science and data science backgrounds. The event should be a cool opportunity to dig into the new data that the 2018 election generates.

If you are interested in participating, please fill out the form below. We are not looking for you to write long responses to these questions. A couple/few sentences on each should be sufficient.

For more information about the conference, see our website: http://politicalanalyticsconference.com/

If you have other questions, please contact Dr. Stephen Pettigrew: pettigr@sas.upenn.edu
