CREATING A STUDENT CASE COMPETITION 2013 WINNER ALEX AKULOV As a winner of SAS and INFORMS Student Analytical Scholar Competition, I would like to thank the organizers and sponsors of this award for providing me with the opportunity to get a glimpse into the real world analytics problems. Winning this award has not only given me an additional resume credential, but also connected me with local analytics professionals. Aside from the excitement of INFORMS Analytics Conference, this summer I was also invited to speak at Vancouver Analytics Group meeting, where I shared learning lessons from writing a winning consulting proposal. This has raised my profile and led to making important employment connections. I would encourage the sponsors to continue putting on competitions like Student Analytical Scholar, as these contests have a direct positive effect on students, encouraging them to learn new skills through challenging real world problems.
