In honour of Finland's centenary, Statistics Finland arranged two competitions related to the utilisation of statistics.
In the statistics in the media competition we looked for the best data utilising statistics in the media. In the competition for students at universities and universities of applied sciences we searched for the best electronic implementation to illustrate statistics.
The statistics in the media competition was won by the Finnish Broadcasting Company's article Kyllä ennen nuoriso oli kunnollista - vai oliko? (Young people used to be so respectable - or were they?; only in Finnish).
The competitions for students of universities and universities of applied sciences was won by a history game of the University of Jyväskylä’s group of students Ennen oli kaikki … (Everything used to be...; only in Finnish).
