The goal of the International Statistical Literacy Competition is to increase awareness of Statistics among students and teachers throughout the world, to promote statistical literacy resources and to bring together parties interested in statistical literacy in each country.
The ISLP Poster Competition 2010−2011 was open to teams of 2−3 students in two age divisions: students born in or before 1995, and students born in or before 1992. The theme of the competition was environment.
In each country, a country coordinator for ISLP worked very hard to encourage schools and teachers to participate, provided resources and guidelines, and arranged a judging panel and the judging process. The posters were first judged within their countries. After that, the national winner posters were evaluated by an international jury consisting of members from six countries:
– Martha Aliaga (USA), the chair – Chris Wild (New Zealand) – Iddo Gal (Israel) – Metka Zaletel (Slovenia) – Christine Reading (Australia) – Enriqueta Reston (Philippines)

This competition had three phases and was done in 5 languages without the use of computers: first phase was in the students’ school; second, winners in each school competed nationally for a national champion; third, national champions competed in the final, hosted by Statistics South Africa in Durban, South Africa, August 2009. The reason for having three phases, lasting too long and being done in 5 languages was to guarantee the largest participation possible.
Phase III is the final of the competition, fully sponsored by Statistics South Africa under the ISIBALO Capacity Building Program, and organized in cooperation by ISIBALO and the ISLP. Students and teachers met in South Africa during the week of the Biennial Session of the ISI organized by Statistics South Africa and shared the conference venue with delegates from many countries.
This section narrates the events that took place during the week that students and teachers spent in Durban, posting the activities they did and associated data sets, the exam and answer key, the sponsors and other documents.
Phase II is the national competition. National Committees manage and direct it, in cooperation with the ISLP. A winner at each school level will be selected in each country. That winner will represent the country in the International final competition in Durban, South Africa, August 20th 2009.
