Freelancer CDC Contest 2021.


Are you interested in working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center
for Injury Prevention and Control (Injury Center) in having a positive impact on the health and safety of
Americans? Do you enjoy working with network science, algorithms, and datasets? The Detecting Emerging
Threats in Injury and Violence Using Network Science Challenge gives you the opportunity to discover a new
application of network science to impact emerging health threats, win your share of a $16,000 prize purse,
and receive national recognition.
To participate, you will need to provide a network science approach to one of the Injury Center’s priority
topics - Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Suicide, and Drug Overdose. The Injury Center hopes solutions
to this Challenge will find novel ways to identify, characterize, and prevent emerging injury-related health
threats more quickly. If you can use social media data sources to make predictions about future threats,
leverage the latest advances in machine learning and AI, or find another new way of applying network
science to this challenge, you could win!

CHALLENGE OVERVIEW
The Injury Center protects Americans by using data and research to understand how to prevent injuries and
violence and then puts it into practice. Through this Challenge, the Injury Center wants to determine how
network science can be used to support their work. For this challenge, they are looking for innovative
solutions that use network science to address one or more of their priority emerging health threats – ACEs,
suicide, and drug overdose.
Submissions must demonstrate the effectiveness of the network science approach, show the potential
impact the solution could have on the area(s) addressed, describe the approach to the problem, and describe

the data used for the solution. The data must be accessible, from reliable data sources, and U.S.
based. Submissions will be judged on the quality of the proposal, the relevance and accessibility of the data
sources, and the approach to the problem. Both theoretical and submission with demonstrating
data/mathematical solutions will be accepted; submissions that can demonstrate the solution will score
higher.
Solvers will have eight weeks from launch to submit their solution. Up to three prizes will be awarded to the
top solvers that achieve the requirements of the challenge for a total of $15,000. First place will be awarded
$7,500, second place will be awarded $5,000, and third place will be awarded $2,500. Up to ten
additional $100 prizes will be awarded for innovative solutions that meet the criteria. All teams that meet the
criteria will receive a CDC certificate of participation. The results from the winning solutions may be used to
publish a scientific paper.
