MULAT 2023 EkonomiSTAT: Supplying the Demand for Reliable Statistics in Addressing Economic Challenges

For 42 years, the UPLB Statistical Society (STATS), a duly recognized academic organization in the University of the Philippines Los BaƱos, has committed itself to the pursuit of academic and professional excellence. The organization continues to work towards its goal of advancing and promoting the proper application of statistics in all fields of learning endeavors. Though an academic organization, UPLB STATS does not only set its limits in developing academic excellence among its members but also in promoting awareness among the youth nationwide. In recognition of its outstanding efforts and exemplary dedication to the successful conduct of various statistical advocacy activities for the youth, UPLB STATS was awarded as the Best Youth Advocate for Statistics during the 27th and 28th National Statistics Months.

MULAT 2023 EkonomiSTAT: Supplying the Demand for Reliable Statistics in Addressing Economic Challenges

ESTADISTIKA is an annual, invitational statistics quiz, poster-making, essay-writing, and photo contest established by the UPLB STATS. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization opted to re-invent the said activity and make an ESTADISTIKA Special Editionā€”with the same aim of introducing the proper application of statistics in various disciplines and promoting intellectual growth in statistics nationwide.

In its 17th year, high school and college students from schools nationwide are invited to participate in MULAT 2023: A Nationwide ESTADISTIKA Special Edition for Essay Writing, Video-Making Contests, and Photo Contests. The said contests will officially start on the 27th of March 2023, with the theme, “EkonomiSTAT: Supplying the Demand for Reliable Statistics in Addressing Economic Challenges.”

The essay writing contest is divided into two divisionsā€”high school and college.

Meanwhile, the video-making and photo contests are open to all enrolled senior high school and undergraduate college students nationwide. These contests have NO REGISTRATION FEE.
