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.
