I know a lot of you are bunkering in place and may I say it, bored – if you want a fun activity to help the 2020 Census and a chance to win the prize. Feel free to share this challenge with anyone you think may be interested.
Census Accelerate, an initiative of the U.S. Census Bureau’s innovation lab, has launched a first-of-its-kind Video Prize Challenge for partners and content creators to help get the word out about the 2020 Census for a chance to win up to $30,000.
This open call for content is designed to help educate and motivate individuals so that they understand why it’s critical to complete the 2020 Census — from getting the funding their community needs, to representation in congress. The goal of this challenge is to reach hard-to-count communities with engaging and informative content.
Submission period is open through April 17th at 11:59pm EST (extended deadline!), and winners will be announced in May.
Three prizes will be awarded: a $30,000 grand prize, $10,000 runner up, and $10,000 student prize.
This is an excellent opportunity to be creative, civically engaged and make sure your community is counted!
Please see FAQ’s here and contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
In the meantime, please plan to join the upcoming Prize Challenge Info Session on Monday, March 30th at 4:00pm ET.
