Those involved in the WxChallenge would like to acknowledge the University of Oklahoma, and in particular the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences, for their technical, financial, and computational support of the WxChallenge. They would also like to acknowledge the NCWFC, the WxChallenge predecessor, for laying the groundwork for a national forecasting competition. Additionally, the WxChallenge would also like to thank the American Meteorological Society for the recognition given from the special award presented at the 2010 AMS Annual Meeting. Finally, the WxChallenge would like to thank the students and faculty at the participating academic institutions for the overwhelming support and positive feedback through the years and to the many local managers that have made the WxChallenge as successful as possible.
