MyTwoCensus Photo Challenge: Best photo of 2010 Census waste gets a cash prize
MyTwoCensus is running our first photo challenge. After receiving many reports from readers that Local Census Offices around the country are now recycling and throwing out hundreds to thousands of boxes worth of 2010 Census materials (including, as one source says, “A truck completely filled with rubber bands, erasers, and pens…”), MyTwoCensus wants to document this waste.
The Census Bureau is trying to do all of these activities on the down-low (ever since MyTwoCensus posted a photo of boxes on the sidewalks of New York). So to further expose the Census Bureau’s practices, use your camera phones to take photos of Census Bureau waste at your local census office.
Please send your photo with a caption to mytwocensus [AT] mytwocensus.com. I will post the top entries before Labor Day Weekend and let readers vote on the outcome (with a cash prize for the winner if the person chooses to be identified). All photos will be posted anonymously unless the photographer says otherwise.
