Calling all singers, dancers, comedians, actors, actresses, and everything in between. ASA's Got Talent is looking for YOU!

In celebration of the 175th anniversary of the American Statistical Association, the Association will be having a talent show to honour the study and practice of statistics creatively. Engaging their members, celebrating their past, and energizing their future are the themes for this event.

To enter, please complete the form (available here) and submit a video of no longer than five minutes. While the entries must have a statistical theme, they will be interpreted broadly by the judges. Any element of a statistical theme will be considered, including costumes, settings, and props.

All videos must be submitted by 15th January 2015; up to eight finalists will be notified in February and given the opportunity to perform LIVE at JSM in Boston.

The talent show will take place during the 175th Anniversary Celebration Tuesday evening. Finalists will perform their talent LIVE and compete for the grand prize package. There also will be a best online submission prize for one act unable to perform at JSM.

You must be an ASA member to participate. Any questions can be directed to Talent@amstat.org.
