The AMSA/FIMRC Madness Competition has come to an end and we have a winner: the AMSA chapter of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center!

14 AMSA and FIMRC chapters competed in our Madness competition; their members used Firecracker to study and we kept track of the questions they answered. The contest ran from April 1 to April 15, the prize: $2,500 for the chapter that collectively completed the most questions.

Here were the final standings:

Hats off to everyone who participated, we can see that a lot of organizing and a lot of work went into achieving these scores.

We've also awarded three students FIMRC mission trips to Costa Rica. We'll be posting more information about those students, and those trips later this year.
