Student Viz Assignment Contest

Show off your Tableau skills

Contest Overview

Tableau's Academic Programs team is proud to support instructors and students around the world who are using our products in the classroom to see and understand data. Twice a year, we run the Student Viz Assignment Contests where you can submit favorite homework assignments or vizzes you've created and published to Tableau Public.

Prizes for top three winners include Tableau swag bags and community recognition!
