LOS ANGELES, Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- It's gold, new to the awards club and has a mega-watt smile. It's a Scorpio and is the envy of all the other awards in town. It's "The Jackie," the official award of the "Hub Network's First Annual Halloween Bash" national costume competition, airing Saturday, October 26, 8–10 p.m. ET/5–7 p.m. PT on the Hub Network, a destination for kids and their families.
The jack-o'-lantern inspired award was designed by Oishii Creative and manufactured by Society Awards, the company behind the awards for the American Music Awards, Directors Guild Awards, Golden Globes, MTV Video Music Awards and SXSW, among others. With a total height of 18-inches and an estimated weight of 10-pounds, "The Jackie" features a golden pumpkin elevated on a 2-inch pedestal. The award artfully integrates the iconic shape of the Hub Network logo into both eyes, and has a welcoming, yet mysterious smile.
The first-of-its-kind award will be featured at the "Halloween Bash" which will include the first-ever nationwide Halloween costume competition, where 50 semi-finalists representing each state in America will win a trip to Los Angeles to be a part of the televised costume competition judged by Halloween-expert Martha Stewart, actor Hal Sparks ("Spider Man 2"), and actress, singer and dancer Coco Jones ("Holla at the DJ"). One lucky winner will be crowned the "Best in Bash" National Champion, receive $25,000 and a chance at a walk-on role on the Hub Network's Daytime Emmy® Award-winning series, "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series."
Semi-finalists will be competing for "The Jackie" in the following categories:
- Howlarious – Shows the lighter side of Halloween with a take on a fun, funny or otherwise hilarious costume.
- Spooktacular – Get ready to frighten America by showcasing the most spine-chilling costume for all the ghosts and ghouls out there.
- Mad Genius – Unique, original, innovative and never seen before. A knight in armor fashioned from bottle caps, bat wings made from old umbrellas, or a cardboard-box jetpack, the possibilities are endless. Display a costume unlike any other — show your Mad Genius.
- Blast from the Past – Take a stroll down memory lane with a timeless costume. Memories, nostalgia and yesteryear brought to life. Show your take on great figures from before the 20th century or a retro 50's sock hop get up, 60's flower child or other "period" inspired costumes.
- Animal Kingdom – Transform into a living creature from the past or present. Be a roaring lion, a school of jellyfish, a firefly, or a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
- Everyday Stuff – We're looking for the coolest refrigerator/freezer, remote control, mailbox, block of Swiss cheese, telephone and more. Be creative and transform the ordinary into the extra-ordinary.
Hosted by Kenan Thompson ("Saturday Night Live"), the "Hub Network's First Annual Halloween Bash," will also include performances by America's first teen-girl pop group Fifth Harmony, pop-star Cody Simpson and appearances by Nolan Gould ("Modern Family"), Zachary Gordon ("Diary of a Wimpy Kid"), Bailee Madison ("Trophy Wife"), Rico Rodriguez ("Modern Family"), Keean Johnson ("Spooksville") and Todd Newton ("Family Game Night"), among many others.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
