2020 Census Get-Out-The-Count Video Challenge

The local Complete Count Committee, a joint-effort between Fairview and Wood Village, endorse the Census Bureau’s first-of-its-kind Video Prize Challenge. The challenge is an open call to content creators to help get the word out about the 2020 Census for a chance to win up to $30,000. 

The goal of the competition is to reach historically hard-to-count communities with engaging and informative short-form videos about the importance of the Census. Submissions will be accepted until April 11 at 2:59AM EST, 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.  

Videos must be 30 seconds to 3 minutes in length. Anyone 13 years and older can participate. To get more information, contact the Census Bureau at or check out their website at

Census Coordinator Cristal Otero, "We would love to see someone in our community take home one of the video challenge prizes; many people in our community have educated themselves about the importance of the 2020 Census and are prepared to share their knowledge in a video.”  

With many young people staying home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we think this is the perfect project for them to work on with a potential big win at the end. Videos do not need to be in English, and we can link content creators to resources to create video sub-titles.
