ISLP is pleased to announce the International Poster Competition for 2014-2015. The competition invites school students from around the world to design a statistical poster. The poster can be about any topic. However, the posters should reflect or illustrate usage analysis, interpretation and communication of statistics or statistical information.

There will be a National competition within each country involved, followed by an International competition to determine the overall winners. These will be announced and the posters displayed at the 60th Congress of the ISI in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil during July 2015.


The registration has now begun. The competition is open to teams of 2 to 3 students. There are two categories

  • students born in 1999 and younger

Teams are registered by teachers. Teachers will inform the country coordinator of their home country of participants.
