Young Statisticians ‘Writing for Significance’ competition

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in Latest call-outs to members

From Julian Champkin, Significance editor.
If you haven’t entered the Young Statisticians Group ‘Writing for Significance’ competition yet (and if you are happily still young, in statistical terms at least) there is still plenty of time if you start thinking about it now.
  • All you have to do is write an article for ‘Significance’. All it has to do is convey something statistical in an interesting way that statisticians and non-statisticians will both enjoy.
  • All you have to be is young – a student or within the first ten years of your statistical career.
  • All you need to know for the full details is on the Significance website
  • All you will get is publication in ‘Significance’, and a chance to prove that you can not only do statistics, you can tell people about statistics as well.
The deadline is 1 March. So if you have ever thought ‘Why haven’t they covered my statistical research’ or ‘I could write a piece as good as that’ now is your chance to put your writing where your mouth is. Fire up the computer and spread the word about statistics to the great outside world. Don’t just read Significance – write for it!
(Incidentally, we have six issues of Significance magazine this year, instead of four, so there’s even more to read. Our next issue is datelined February. The one after that, in April, is an Olympic Games special – ideas, suggestions – and contributions – welcome.)
