Announcing 2018 Project of the Year Recipients

Posted on Oct 18, 2018 2:07:42 PM

Over the last six years, it’s been a real honor to be able to work with numerous school administrators, business officials, and other members of community organizations on numerous projects and presentations. As analytics continues to grow in the public sector, we continue to be encouraged by the innovations across the country. To further encourage data curiosity and analytics innovation, we started the annual Forecast5 Project of the Year Awards in 2016. Now, each year, we review dozens of projects and award PROJECT OF THE YEAR honors to local governments along with a monetary donation to the fund of their choice.

I’m excited to announce the six 2018 Project of the Year award recipients that were recognized at this year's National Conference.
