We had another pumpkin carving contest!

Our pumpkin masterpieces are shown below. We carved them Monday evening (October 28, 2013), then placed them in the main office for people to vote on them. Votes were counted by the loose change accumulated by each pumpkin, except that any dollar bills penalized that pumpkin. We garnered $140 for future Stat Club projects, and we had great fun in the process!

Pumpkin Carving Contest

Pumpkin Carving Contest

In Fall 2011, we had a pumpkin carving contest to raise money for the club. The carved pumpkins were on display in the main office, and students, faculty and staff voted for their favorite with a cash donation. Shown is Dr. Yao, with the winning pumpkin carved in his likeness.
