Registration competition open
Today, October 20, is European Statistics Day. This day is celebrated in all public statistical institutions in the European Union, in order to highlight the importance of official and independent statistics.
And Statbel also underlines that importance, as a partner of the European Statistics Competition in Belgium. The other good news is that the registration platform of the competition also opens today on www.statisticscompetition.be.
The European Statistics Competition is for students in the second and third degrees of secondary education in Belgium. As from January 2022, students in Flanders, Wallonia or Brussels will be subjected to several tests: an online test with knowledge and analysis questions and, if successful, a creative test on communication of statistics. In a final phase, they may compete against their European peers.
Students participate individually or in teams of two or three students, accompanied by at least one teacher. A nice prize awaits at the end and maybe even an invitation to the European award ceremony.
