HAMMOND | Vying against other Midwestern college and university students, two Purdue University Calumet computer information systems seniors returned from the recent Ball State University Information Systems Project and Case Competition with first place, first runner-up and second runner-up honors.

Bradley Jordan of Cedar Lake and Benjamin Oprinovich of Munster won the Best Case Solution Award for effectively analyzing, providing a solution and presenting their solution of a case analysis to a panel of judges, according to Kuan-Chou Chen team advisor, professor and head of Purdue Calumet’s Department of Information Systems.

The student pair, who competed against teams of five to seven students, also earned first runner-up honors in the Project Presentation category by developing a Geographic Information Systems plan to help the Legacy Foundation of Northwest Indiana, a non-profit community organization, better connect people with needed resources. The interactive GIS identifies and organizes Lake County's 414 non-profit organizations on a web map.
