New international poster competition on tap to increase awareness

International Competition

In addition to the ASA competitions, teams of students working on an environmental theme can submit their poster to the 2011 International Statistical Literacy Project’s Poster Competition. This competition shares the goal of increasing the awareness of statistics among students and teachers. It has slightly different rules and eligibility, with both national and international phases. Authors of the winning posters from the United States will compete internationally at the International Statistical Institute’s conference in Dublin, Ireland.

    The same poster may be submitted to both the ASA poster competition and the international competition if it features an environmental theme and meets the criteria for both competitions.

      Posters must be submitted by April 15. Certificates, plaques, and $1,000 in prizes will be awarded.

        Questions may be directed to the U.S. ISLP country coordinator, Milo Schield, at Schield@Augsburg.edu.

        Introduce K–12 students to the world of statistics through the 2011 poster and project competitions, directed by the ASA/NCTM Joint Committee on Curriculum in Statistics and Probability. The competitions, now in their 22nd and 25th years, respectively, offer opportunities for students to formulate questions, gather and display data, and draw conclusions from data.

        Winners are recognized with plaques, cash prizes, certificates, and calculators (donated by Texas Instruments), and their names are published in Amstat News.

        Posters judged in four grade-level categories (K–3, 4–6, 7–9, and 10–12) are due every year on April 1. Projects are due on April 1 for grades 4–6 and 7–9 and on May 30 for grades 10–12.
