Back to School Census Campaigns
Has your Local Complete Count Committee partnered with schools and local organizations for back-to-school events? Now is a great time to share with parents/teachers how schools are impacted by census responses. Consider including census flyers or stickers in the giveaway bags or even setting up census awareness booths (if social distancing allows). Share resources with your teachers that can be used in the home or at school to keep students engaged and parents informed. Visit thecensus websiteto find coloring books, worksheets and more!
