The United States Conference on Teaching Statistics, USCOTS, is held on odd years (in alternation with the Electronic Conference on Teaching Statistics, eCOTS, which occurs on even years). USCOTS is once again holding an “A-Mu-Sing” competition (mu being the Greek symbol for the mean, a statistics term), which includes categories of Jokes/Cartoons, Poetry, Songs, and Videos. So visit the official rules page and get cracking; the submission deadline is March 10th! Winners will be notified on April 1 and will be showcased at the May 18-20 USCOTS meeting hosted by Penn State. Cash prizes of ~$200 are expected to be awarded in each category.
Thanks to Dr. Larry Lesser of UTEP for the reminder and invitation to participate.
