Want to practice creating an optimal data management plan (DMP)? The DataWorks! DMP Challenge is your opportunity to learn about data management plans, receive expert feedback, and win prizes.  
Data management plans (DMPs) play an integral role in ensuring that data are collected, organized, stored, and shared responsibly. The DMP Challenge is an opportunity to practice using the 2023 NIH Data Management and Sharing Plan template (NOT-OD-014). We invite you to take the challenge and amend your existing DMP or create one specifically for this competition. View the first DMP Challenge winner’s submission.  
As part of this challenge, FASEB will award up to ten Outstanding NIH DMSP awards, each of which includes a prize of $500. To learn more and submit an entry, visit www.herox.com/dmpchallenge. Submissions are due by 11:59 pm ET on October 21.
