Heritage Health Prize resultsPosted: October 19, 2013
A few days ago I attended a talk by the winner of the Heritage Health Prize, and it reminded me that I should document the outcome of my team’s efforts.
My team-mate and I competed under the name Planet Melbourne. We submitted entries up until the first milestone at six months and didn’t make any submissions after that.
This apparently made us a useful reference point during the following milestones. Because the milestone rankings didn’t show scores, movements in a team’s ranking relative to our position gave a rough-and-ready indication of the improvement in their score.
Anyway, our rankings were as follows …
Milestone 1 (6 months): 5th
Milestone 2 (12 months): 5th
Milestone 3 (18 months): 14th
Finish (24 months): 25th
After the initial announcement of the winners, there were a whole bunch of disqualifications. Probably from people competing using multiple accounts. As a result, our final official ranking improved to 17th.
