2020 Census Video Prize Challenge – Chance to win $30,000

Greetings –

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 census.accelerate@census.gov 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.

Thank you

Tree Planting

Tree Planting in Field Club

Neighbors in Field Club planted 13 trees in front of their houses thanks to a grant from the Midtown Neighborhood Association.  The Field Club Homeowners League is a member of MNA, which allows our residents to participate in re-tree grants.  On Saturday, Nov 1, neighbors received instruction on proper planting and maintenance of trees from John Ranson, MNA treasurer and co-chair of the tr-tree committee.  Our neighbors requested and received 13 trees of four different varieties to plant in the public property in front of their houses.  John got help from neighbors and children to get a demonstration tree planted!

Remember, you dues paid to the Field Club Homeowners Leagues allow us to pay the dues to belong to MNA.  Our participation in MNA allows us to get trees in the spring and fall.  Thanks to all neighbors who have paid their dues!

If you did not get a tree this fall, but would like to get one in the future, please email board member Peggy Pavlik at pavlikmr9@gmail.com.

Monday on the Medians

Thank you to all the neighbors who have come out and helped on Mondays! We’ve had a great turn out.

The next Monday on the Medians is schedule for September 23rd from 7-7:45 pm.  We will use this time to weed and improve the beautify gardens on the medians.  No knowledge or skill needed–just a willingness to work.  Neighbors of all ages are welcome!

Bring weeding tools, a sack or bucket to put weed in and water if you want.  Meet on the east median.

See you there!

Also, did you leave some hand tools on the median after one of the Monday sessions? Contact Jennifer Moss Breen if the tools are yours.
