Making a video about the 2020 Census could win you up to $30,000!
Census Accelerate, an initiative within the innovation arm of the U.S. Census Bureau, has launched its first-ever video prize competition to reward the most engaging, impactful and informative videos about the 2020 Census – with a total of $50,000 in cash prizes.
Submissions are due on May 7, 2020 at 11:59pm EDT (NEW extended deadline)
The challenge will focus on short-format video content—30 seconds to 3 minutes in length— for social platforms like YouTube, with the goal of informing the public about the importance of the census, and activating them to self-respond.
The U.S. Census Bureau will be awarding a total of $50,000 for video submissions that can encourage hard to count communities to fill out the Census.
