The government needs people to fill out the 2020 U.S. Census. The more people who complete the Census, the more funding communities get for healthcare, education, roads, and other services. Everyone needs to be counted.
That’s why we want you to create impactful, accurate, inspiring, funny, creative, and culturally relevant videos that will educate your community about the 2020 Census and motivate hard-to-count communities to fill out the Census reminding them that it’s not too late to respond online, by phone or mail.
Videos can be any style (music video, narrative, documentary, etc.) We encourage you to get creative! All videos must be:30-seconds in length and include a call to action to take the census (via phone or at my2020census.gov!)
