    • ARTS– Would be responsible for creating Census informational banners to be hung throughout the school and at all major sporting events (Football, Basketball, Baseball, Wrestling), incorporating Census messages, school logos and creative taglines .

    • SPORTS – Would be responsible for incorporating the 2010 Census into their halftime message and setting up informational booths at sporting events to distribute Census materials.

    • BUSINESS– Would be responsible for educating other subcommittees on the importance of Census data for businesses in their community as well as how the Census data is used to determine funding for grants and loan programs.

    • MEDIA– Would be responsible for completing a multitude of projects that include filming a 2010 Census PSA commercial delivering the 2010 Census message and a 30-second radio spot for the Census, which would be played at all public events at the school such as sporting events, assemblies and plays.

    • THEATER – Would be responsible for incorporating a Census message in one or more of its productions. Theater students could also team up with the media subcommittee to record PSA’s and/or voiceovers.

    • COMMUNITY SERVICE– Most schools have some sort of community service requirement that must be met in order to graduate. Students could volunteer to help at Census events and receive credit for their efforts.

  • The aim of the Program is to enhance the Census in Schools curriculum. By engaging the students in various activities at the subcommittee level, we can create a more enriched learning environment.

  • Each subcommittee will generate activities and events that they can present for their Census project . These projects will coincide with the school’s regular activities in each focus area, but will introduce a Census subject matter.

  • As a final segment of the Complete Count Committee Program, we will work with the City Mayors’ liaisons in selecting the best projects from the Program and reward the schools for their hard earned efforts.

  • Winners could be selected in the following areas:

    • Best 30-second PSA , TV and Radio

    • Best Original Musical Score

    • Best Artwork Delivering The Census Message

    • Outstanding Community Service Awards

    • Outstanding Translation Services For The Community

  • We can further utilize the best projects by working with our partners in the media to provide airtime for the PSA’s (both TV and radio) as well as to feature artwork TV spots during the evening local news.

  • This Program will challenge each student to learn about the Census and its work and to educate others (including their parents) about the importance of participating in the 2010 decennial Census.

  • The Program will also serve as a stepping stone for each student since the 2020 Census will be the first decennial Census they may partake in as head of household.
