Data Science Foundation Contributors Competition
The Contributors Competition aims to reward the members who contribute the most to the Data Science Foundation website by helping to raise their profile.
The competition is based on Contributor Points, which are a combination of points awarded for publishing material and points received from other members though post ratings. The winner is the person who has accrued the most points during the competition period.
The winner of the monthly competition will have a 'Winners Badge' added to their Personal Profile page and will receive a £50 Amazon gift voucher.
