Author(s): Jamis Perrett*
Companies: Bayer U.S.- Crop Science
Keywords: Statistical Literacy; Data Visualization; Poster; Competition

The ASA Poster Competition for grades K-12 has been around since 1990 when the first competition was held that Spring. It has continued to develop over the years to stay current with the advances in technology. It recently aligned with the ISLP poster competition and changed its name to the ASA Data Visualization Poster Competition for Grades K-12. This talk will discuss the purpose of the competition, its connection to ISLP, and the effort to help students visualize data to learn more about the world around them.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
