The three municipalities of Chaffee County are holding a 2020 Census competition from Sunday, Aug. 23 to Monday, Aug. 31.
Households that have yet to respond to the 2020 Census are challenged to respond ONLINE* at my2020census.gov during this time frame. When completing the form, be sure to digitally capture or print the confirmation page that appears once the form has been officially submitted.
The town that achieves the largest increase in its self-response rate to the census within this time frame will be awarded three $100 gift cards to local grocery stores. The town administrator will then have a drawing from the submitted names/confirmation pages of those (residing in the winning town) who completed their form online during the competition.
Screenshots of the confirmation page along with the individual’s name, phone number and email address should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Printed confirmation pages with the individual’s name, phone number and email address written on the printout should be dropped off at the winning town hall/city office.
The due date for submission of the confirmation page is Tuesday, Sept. 1 by 5 p.m. Winners of the gift cards will be notified and announced no later than Monday, Sept. 7. The announcement will be made through a press release, social media, websites and newsletters.
All right, Chaffee County, get ready to compete and complete your 2020 Census!
*Phone submissions are not an option, as the U.S. Census Bureau does not issue confirmation numbers over the phone. Submissions by mail are not an option either, as paper forms take time to process and probably would not impact the percentages in the designated time frame.
