Get paid to improve your political prediction skills

There's a US government contest among prediction teams, and UPenn is recruiting.

College grads only, but it doesn't have to be a US degree.

Theoretically, it's 6-10 hours/year for four years, but it wouldn't surprise me if people who get interested put in more time.

UPenn is offering $150 total.

List of teams-- I haven't checked yet for other offers, but I will. UPenn isn't listed, so I'm not sure what's going on.

UPenn has Phillip Tetlock, who's done exceedingly interesting work about how bad people are at prediction, and this includes the experts.
