#MakeNCCount Census Video Contest
North Carolina Campus Compact and the NC Counts Coalition invite college students to participate in the #MakeNCCount Video Contest to raise awareness about the decennial Census 2020.
We are looking for innovative and short one-minute videos that highlight the importance of the census in North Carolina. The target audience is non-residential (commuter) college students.
Preference will be given to videos that target the historically under-counted communities. In North Carolina those include minority communities (African American, Asian, and Hispanic/Latinx), children under 5 years old, the foreign-born population, communities with limited or no broadband internet access, and renters).
Informational: Videos in this category include basic information on the census. This category could include history of the census, answer common questions, or include relevant information such as the fact that the census will be conducted online for the first time.
Inspirational: Videos in this category should inspire non-residential college students to complete the census form.
NC Campus Compact & NC Counts Coalition will select a first and second place winner in each category.
First Place: $450
Second Place: $200
