The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD), together with the United Nations Foundation, Google Cloud, and the World Bank are hosting the Visualize 2030 data storytelling contest, which challenges students to tell a data-driven story that reveals how at least two Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) influence each other and what actions might be taken in order to reach those goals by 2030. 

There contest closes on November 16, and the top 5 eligible submissions will receive: (a) a USD 10,000 cash prize; (b) an announcement at the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2019; and (c) a publication on the Google Cloud, UNF, GPSDD, and World Bank platforms. 

In order to participate in the contest, students must be 18 or older and be actively-enrolled at the college or graduate level. In addition, participants are required to use data from at least one of the newly available BigQuery public datasets provided by the UN Statistics Division and the World Bank. Any outside datasets will not be considered and will result in your application being disqualified.
