Caption Contest - February 2017 - Results


We had 21 submissions for the February caption contest that featured a cartoon showing two paleontologists at a dig site where they have uncovered a set of dinosaur bones, but also an object that looks like the number 5.

The February caption contest was won by Mickey Dunlap from University of Georgia. Mickey’s caption, "Paleontologists finally discover the origin of using a 5% level of significance," was selected for its ability to foster a discussion about the arbitrariness of the 5% significance level.

An honorable mention that rose to the top of the judging for it’s humor was the caption “The archaeologists were 95% confident they had found the never before documented Fiveasaurus-Rex,” written by Michael Via a student at Magruder High School.
