The competition is NOW open! Register to learn and tell Singapore story through data.

Data is all around us and our day to day decisions are based on them. As the 3rd fastest growing technical skill, IMDA and Tableau are collaborating to equip Singaporean students with the ability to see and understand data. This competition is designed to guide students through the basics of how to read and understand data, while learning to ask questions and analyse to craft their visual story about Singapore.

The theme for this year will look at the four pillars that determine Singapore - The Next Chapter. Pick one of the themes below to tell your own data story of Singapore around the theme.
  • Security & Global Collaboration: Securing a place in the world for Singapore
  • Sustainability & Infrastructure: Building a well-connected, world-class city for Singaporeans
  • Economy & Entrepreneurship: Developing a vibrant economy with more opportunities for workers
  • Socio-economics: Forging a cohesive, caring and inclusive society
