Over 11,000 students from 16 European countries signed up for the fourth edition of the European Statistics Competition (ESC). The ESC is a competition organized by Eurostat and volunteering National Statistical Institutes addressed to secondary education students with the purpose of encouraging students to get familiar with statistics and official statistical sources.
This year 61 teams participated in the European finals where they prepared a video on the topic »Information and disinformation: Official statistics in world overflowing with data«. Teams were very creative and demonstrated the importance of official statistical data in everyday life in various ways.
A jury of European experts selected the top five videos in both the age group 14–16 (category B) and the age group 16–18 (category A). The winners of each category will receive their prize at a virtual award ceremony that will take place on 16 June 2021.
Winning team Category A: VERDE (Portugal)

Winning team Category B: TEGLZAROŽE (Slovenia)

Congratulations to all winning teams and their menthors!
One thought on “Winners of the 4th European Statistical Competition are announced!”
I have been away from public statistics for almost 7 years now and am no longer up to date to venture too deeply into statistical topics. So it is all the nicer to see that former colleagues continue to use this platform and post interesting topics. And week after week there are between 50 and 100 visitors who look at such topics!
Thanks Katja! Best wishes from Armin
