Opportunity to show creativity

Members of the public have another opportunity to show off their creativity by developing a logo and motto for the Caribbean Association of Professional Statisticians, which will be established shortly in the CARICOM region.

Those persons who are interested in participating in the competitions should download forms from the Barbados Statistical Service’s website at or from that of the Barbados Government Information Service at

The deadline for submission of these forms is Friday, May 31, and they should be emailed to; and hard copies sent to BSS, Fifth Floor, Baobab Towers, Warrens, St. Michael.

Both the logo and motto must be original, and in the case of the motto, if the language is not English, translation must be provided. Each participant will be allowed to submit only one proposal and the winners of the logo and motto competitions will receive $1,500 and $500, respectively.

Participation in both competitions is open to Barbadian nationals or CARICOM nationals residing in Barbados. The national winners will be announced on July 5, this year and the winning submissions will be forwarded to the CARICOM Secretariat by July 31.

The overall winners, to be selected from the winning submissions of the various member countries, will be announced at the 38th Meeting of the Standing Committee of Caribbean Statisticians, which will be held later this year.

CAPS will be created to advance official and academic statistics and to support evidence-based decision-making at all levels. The view has been expressed that the establishment of a regional Association would positively impact the harmonisation process within the region.
