Caption Contest - January 2018 - Results

We had 13 submissions for the January caption contest that featured a cartoon showing the fruit section of a grocery store where there was an ample supply of some fruits (like cherries and oranges) that are also out of reach of the customers while the store was running out of other fruits (like apples and grapefruit) that were in easy reach.

The winning caption for the January contest was "Convenience samples just take low-hanging fruit!" written by Larry Lesser from University of Texas at El Paso. Larry's caption can be a vehicle to discuss the nature of convenience samples and how they are likely to differ from probability-based samples.

A caption that received an honorable mention was "Evidence that oranges and cherries are unpopular? Or that shelf-height impacts sales?" written by Joe Nolan from Northern Kentucky University.
