TREND is a school competition in statistics conducted by the Russian Association of Statisticians since the 2017-18 academic year. The competition uses online technologies, helping children from remote regions to participate. Teams from more than 100 schools participated in the competition.

The competition is included in the presidential program and winners receive a special scholarship to study at university. But more importantly, the competition teaches children to enjoy statistical research, helping them to develop an interest in statistics and an understanding of how statistical knowledge can be used in practice.
