#MakeNCCount Video Contest Winners

March 27, 2020

NC Campus Compact, in partnership with NC Counts Coalition, presents the winners of the #MakeNCCount Video Contest. These videos, targeting college students, provide information about the census in creative and fun ways. There were two categories for contest submissions: Informational and Inspirational. Each winner received a cash prize.

The #MakeNCCount Video Contest sought short videos highlighting the importance of the census in North Carolina with special emphasis on reaching non-residential (commuter) college students.  Preference was given to videos targeting minority communities (African American, Asian, and Hispanic/Latinx), children under 5 years old, the foreign-born population, communities with limited or no broadband internet access, and renters.

1st place Informational category: Deja Mayfield, North Carolina A&T State University

2nd place Informational category: Love Cesar, NC A & T State University

Inspirational category winner: Lauren Bagby, Winston-Salem State University
