Abstract: 

In the United Kingdom, the Statistics Prize is one of many school competitions catering to a wide range of disciplines and types of pupils. It therefore vies for interest in the schools and also among potential sponsors. This paper discusses the benefits, as well as the problems and misconceptions that have occurred since the establishment of the competition.
