Description

The Hong Kong Statistical Society and the Education Bureau were co-organising a new competition, namely "Statistics Creative-writing Competition 2009". The competition aims to raise the interest of secondary school students in statistics and its application; and to encourage them to creatively express in words the daily application of statistical concepts or put statistical concepts into a story in a scientific and objective manner.

To enable participants to better understand the details of the competition, a briefing seminar was conducted on 16 May 2009. The responses were very favourable. Most of the teachers and students attending the seminar expressed interest in submitting entries for the competition. The deadline of submission would be 18 September 2009.
 

Dr. Philip YU, Vice President of the Society, and members of the organising committee of the competition shared with the attendees their experience and practical tips on writing interesting statistical articles.Dr. Philip YU, Vice President of the Society, and members of the organising committee of the competition shared with the attendees their experience and practical tips on writing interesting statistical articles.
