A statistics poster is a display containing two or more related graphics that summarize a set of data, look at the data from different points of view, and answer specific questions about the data. The competition is open to all K-12 students in Pennsylvania in the four grade level categories: K-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12. Cash prizes, certificates, and ribbons are awarded for first, second, third, and fourth place in each category. Certificates are awarded for honorable mentions in each category. The winning posters from the Pennsylvania Competition are submitted to the National Statistics Poster Competition.
We are thrilled to announce that the Saint Francis Science Outreach Center will again host the Pennsylvania Statistics Poster Competition for 2014. Cash prizes and certificates are awarded for first, second, third, and fourth place in each category. Certificates are awarded for honorable mentions in each category. The winning posters from the Pennsylvania Competition are submitted to the National Statistics Poster Competition.
The deadline of submitting posters has been extended to March 6, 2014 due to the significant number of school delays and closings. Posters MUST be postmarked by midnight on Thursday, March 6, 2014.
What the Judges will look for:
Judging will take place in March 2014. All decisions by the judges are final. To be involved with judging of the PA Statistics Poster Competition please contact the Science Outreach Center.
If the submission is a collaborative effort, the prize money will be divided equally. For the K-3 category, winning poster submissions by a team of 5 or more students will be distributed according to the school's specifications. Pennsylvania Statistics Poster Competition winners will also be submitted to the National Statistics Poster Competition, which is coordinated by the American Statistical Association.
