ASA's Got Talent
In celebration of our 175th anniversary, we had four great acts participate in the talent show and competition to honor the study and practice of statistics creatively. The acts were so outstanding that we could not pick just one, so we would like to thank each of the acts below and congratulate them on their win:
- Almost Shirley
- The Imposteriors
- Fifth Moment Band
- Jami Jackson
The acts were chosen through a competition held earlier this year. Members of the 175th steering committee carefully reviewed each talent entry for originality, creativity, and its adherence to a statistical theme. Almost Shirley played on common statistical terms to explain their love for their statistically 'significant other.' The Imposteriors connected the world of statistics to the beat of "Pretty Woman." Fifth Moment used their energy and creativity to explain the rules of data, and Jami Jackson sang about her love of statistics.
Committee members also chose an honorable mention, Lawrence Mark Lesser, for best online submission. He received a gift certificate for his submission of an original performance that connected statistics education outreach and the Texas Lottery.
