The premise of the contest is simple: Take student performance data (provided by Few) and present the best dashboard that could actually be used by a school teacher to monitor their students. Anyone and everyone is eligible, as is any type of software tool you'd like to use.
If you win, you'll get your dashboard in the second edition of Few's book, Information Dashboard Design.
