Missing the LGBT Center Resource Room and all of the lovely people that spend time there? We may have a solution! Introducing the Virtual Resource Room, a Zoom space where you can see some friendly faces, chat, do homework, and watch cat and dog livestreams with other students. While virtual fig bars and cookies are still in the works at Zoom (or so we assume), we hope to provide some community and good company for each other.

The 2020 Census is a constitutionally mandated once-a-decade count of our nation. It is critical that we achieve a complete and accurate count of everyone living in the United States because the results determine how many representatives in Congress each state has — and how more than $675 billion federal dollars are distributed each year into communities for the next decade.

The challenge:

Explain why the census matters in a short (30 seconds to 3 minutes) video, designed for a platform such as YouTube, that uses entertainment, emotion, creativity, and/or humor to motivate people to respond.

This video prize challenge is open to any individual, team, or university student/student organization that can create a video that meets all of the requirements of this challenge. 

Submission deadline is 11:59 pm on May 7, 2020

Details about the Challenge are available here.
