For 38 years, the UPLB Statistical Society (STATS), a duly recognized academic organization in the University of the Philippines Los Baños, has committed itself to the pursuit of academic and professional excellence. The organization continues to work towards its goal of advancing and promoting proper application of statistics in all fields of learning endeavors. Though an academic organization, UPLB STATS does not set its limit in developing academic excellence among its members. In recognition of its outstanding efforts and exemplary dedication to the successful conduct of various statistical advocacy activities for the youth, UPLB STATS was recently awarded as the Best Youth Advocate for the Statistics in the 28th National Statistics Month.
Now on its 13th year, the organization’s annual activity, Estadistika, will once again be conducted. ESTADISTIKA is an invitational statistics quiz, poster-making, essay- writing, and photo contest, which aims to instill the significance of statistics among high school students, to introduce the proper application of statistics in various disciplines, to stimulate interest in statistics and to promote intellectual growth in statistics among the youth.

It will be participated by students from public and private high schools in the whole Luzon Province including Regions I, II, III (Central Luzon), IV-A (CALABARZON), IV-B (MIMAROPA), V (Bicol Region), Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), and the National Capital Region (NCR).
