NV-ASA K-12 Poster Competition

The Nevada K-12 Statistics Poster Competition began in 2004.  The brain child of David Thiel, former Math Curriculum Coordinator for Clark County School District, the competition has encouraged engagement with statistics among students across the age spectrum for over 15 years.  After supporting David since the beginning of the competition, Tia Price was the primary organizer from 2016 to 2020. In 2022, Elizabeth Harris took the reins, after a hiatus in 2021 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

Teachers from schools throughout Nevada, who teach data analysis and statistics, engaged their students in this learning experience. The poster competition provides an excellent opportunity for students to demonstrate mathematical understanding via their imagination and personal interest. In addition, student participants must use all of the mathematical processes - problem solving, reasoning, making connections, and communicating - to share a product that is clear, concise and purposeful.

In 2022, 135 students from 4 schools participated in the competition. 113 posters were judged.

The competition is co-sponsored by the Nevada Chapter of the American Statistical Association and the Southern Nevada Mathematics Council.

All winners receive a certificate of achievement and a monetary prize.  Prize amounts awarded: 1stplace—$72, 2ndplace—$48, 3rdplace—$24  The schools of students with first place posters received a plaque recognizing the students’ accomplishments.

All recognized posters are sent to the National ASA Statistics Poster Competition.

Thank you to all the students and teachers who entered posters in the competition, the judges for their efforts in determining the winners, and the sponsors for their time and financial support! 

Shout-out to Elizabeth Harris for taking over the Poster Competition Coordinator reins from Tia Price.  Thank you for all your work Elizabeth!
