AAPOR's Got Talent

Do You Have the Talent to Tackle the Most Pressing Issues in Survey Research?

The Education Committee is now accepting abstract submissions to participate in AAPOR’s Got Talent (AGT) – the most exciting survey research competitive event, debuting at the 73rd AAPOR Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado.

Taking inspiration from reality T.V. talent shows, we believe AAPOR members have the talent to tackle some of the toughest issues in survey research. Teams (or individuals) will submit pitches for how to address an important survey research problem identified by the AAPOR community. Five abstracts will be selected to present their pitches to a panel of judges in an open session at the 2018 conference.

Teams will present how they would do the research, the impact of the research, how it solves the research issue and any limitations. That's right - you don’t have to actually do the research - just wow the judges with your research design! The judges and audience will then vote to decide which team has the biggest talent. In addition to accolades and the admiration of fellow AAPOR attendees, the winning teams will receive cash prizes - $5000 grand prize and $1000 runner up prize!

Deadline to Submit an Abstract Extended to January 19, 2018.
