Ohio Statistics Poster Competition

There has been a national statistical poster competition since 1990 in which some winners have come from Ohio. The introduction of this state competition will give more students the opportunity to be recognized for their efforts and will encourage even more schools to participate in the national competition.

Adopt-A-School is an exciting program of the ASA's Council of Chapters. The purpose of the program is to enable the many professional statisticians who are capable and interested in bringing statistics into the public school curriculum to do so. The statisticians would make contact their school teachers and officials and volunteer their time, with the ultimate result being visits to school classrooms and assistance for teachers implementing statistics into their courses. Many school teachers, through quantitative literacy programs and the like, have indicated an enthusiasm for statistics, but lack the background and formal training to bring it into the classroom with confidence. That's where the professional statistician contributes.
