The undergraduate economics research society at the University of Chicago
will be hosting the Third Annual Econometrics Game on *Saturday, April 15th*.
The Econometrics Game is an full-day competition on the UChicago campus in
which teams of up to four students will be given a dataset and a
publication in economics to analyze and will write a comprehensive research
paper based on their findings. Three finalist teams will be selected to
present their research in front of a panel of distinguished judges from the
UChicago Department of Economics, including Nobel Laureates, on *Sunday,
April 16th* and will have the opportunity to win prizes such as iPads and
Amazon Kindles.

There is no registration fee associated with participating in the
Econometrics Game, but we do not cover transportation to the event. Meals
will be provided on April 15th.

The competition is intended for students with coursework in statistical
methods or econometrics, but any undergraduate student is welcome to
participate. If you are interested, please register your team of one to
four members for the Econometrics Game at this link
