What is the ‘Get Out The Count’ Video Challenge?

This is a nationwide call for the most impactful, accurate, inspiring, funny, creative, and culturally relevant videos to educate the masses about the 2020 Census and mobilize communities to respond, reminding them that it’s not too late to self-respond online, by phone or by mail.

The Format:

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.

  • $30,000 — Grand Prize
  • $10,000 — Runner Up Prize
  • $10,000 — Student Prize

Submissions close on May 7 at 11:59pm EDT (extended deadline) with winners announced by early June.
