To Steve Jost: This Is What You Can Learn From Guam

If American students had small  financial incentives to design posters (or YouTube videos), then perhaps participation rates for the 2010 Census would be higher…let’s take some lessons from our South Pacific cousin, Guam:

The 2010 Guam Census is soliciting all Guam students to participate in a student poster competition to educate Guam residents about the upcoming Census. All public and private elementary and high schools are invited to participate from now through 5 p.m. March 12.

Students are encouraged to paint, draw and create a poster describing what the Census means to them and the community, according to a Census news release. The theme is “2010 Guam Census, It’s in Our Hands,” which must be incorporated in the 8-1/2 by 11-inch letter-size poster.

The first place winner will receive $250, second place $150, and third place $100, in each category. Winning entries will be used for advertising and promotional purposes, the release added.

Pick up entry forms at the local Census office, 770 East Sunset Blvd., Suite 280, Tiyan
