Students can enter the “Predict the Next President Competition” between October 24 and November 4!
To enter, students should log on to 270towin.com to create their Electoral College map. Students can email the map to Chera LaForge, assistant professor of political science, at firstname.lastname@example.org directly from the site. In the email, students should also include their predicted popular vote percentages and their vote percentage for the Indiana Senate race.
Three awards will be given to students who have the closest Electoral College prediction (with a tiebreaker for popular vote and senate vote, if needed), and for students who “Beat the Profs.” Students who have better predictions than political science faculty will receive a special prize.
The competition is co-sponsored by the History Club and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
