The Taming of Chance Story Competition (brought to us by /The //Fields
Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences/ in partnership with the
/American Statistical Association/) seeks to answer a critical question
at the center of how statistics is (or is not) relevant to our everyday
lives. Answering the question "What our world be like if the normal
curve had never been discovered", statistics educators and students are
invited to tell a story which makes the subject resonate with a general
audience who increasingly have a need to be quantitatively literate.
The competition judges will be awarding the $2000 grand prize in June of
2015, and to further encourage participation by younger students, an
additional $1500 prize is reserved for entries from students under the
age of 26.
