Judges found the winning caption to be "Statistics is becoming so popular that trend lines are becoming trend setters," written by Dashiell Young-Saver, from IDEA Public Schools. Dashiell's catchy caption can be used to discuss the value of visualizations for displaying time series data. An honorable mention this month goes to Larry Lesser from University of Texas at El Paso for his caption, "Walking the red carpet for her song 'Mean', Taylor Swift was accompanied by a 'moving average' plot!" Larry's caption focuses more specifically on teaching about using moving averages to provide a more stable estimate of a trend with time.
