May 2023 - Results

The May caption contest cartoon is shown here. The judges found the winning caption to be “Graphics lead the pack when communicating with diverse crowds.” written by retired Jim Alloway from EMSQ Associates.  Jim’s caption is a good reminder that graphics can convey a more convincing and realistic view of what data are telling us than merely presenting numerical or tabular results.  An honorable mention this month goes to Larry Lesser from The University of Texas at El Paso for the caption: “In the long run, we all use stats!,” that can be used to both spark discussion of the prevalence of statistics in all of our activities or to focus on a specific case like the wearable exercise trackers that runners use to monitor their pace.

Thanks to everyone who submitted a caption and congratulations to our winners!
