The second-place videos in the Statistics2013 Video Contest sponsored by Wiley have been unveiled.

In all, 59 excellently produced videos from numerous countries around the world were submitted for the contest. Judging of the video competition was tough and the judges found it difficult to select the top videos in each category. The contest was judged by a committee of representatives from several countries around the globe, including Kenya, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia and Belgium, and chaired by Thomas Short, John Carroll University professor of statistics and a member of the American Statistical Association.

But the tough decisions were made and we continue to share those with you below.

But first, to refresh your memory, the three award categories for the contest are:

■Best Overall Video
■Best Video by a Person or Persons 18 Years of Age or Less
■Best Non-English Language Video
Now let’s look at the second-place winners with links to each video so you can view each entry:
