Teaching Statistics announces winners of 2020 Peter Holmes and C. Oswald George prizes

Teaching Statistics has just announced the 2020 winners of its annual prizes!

The Peter Holmes prize aims to highlight excellence in motivating practical classroom activity, and was awarded to this paper for its excellent demonstration of a cleverly practical and fun classroom activity, adaptable across a wide range of educational levels and feasibilities, and embodying key statistical ideas. This year’s prize was awarded to Mairéad Hourigan and Aisling M. Leavy (University of Limerick, Republic of Ireland) for their paper Using integrated STEM as a stimulus to develop elementary students’ statistical literacy.

The C. Oswald George prize recognises the best paper, especially submitted by younger authors, in the field of applied statistics published in the journal in a given year. This year, the prize was awarded to Lisa Poling (Appalachian State University, North Carolina) and Travis Weiland (University of Houston, Texas) for their paper Using an interactive platform to recognize the intersection of social and spatial inequalities.

Congratulations to all the winners!
