OC Census Virtual Visual and Performing Arts Showcase


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Census Virtual VAPA Showcase.jpg
​Because the pandemic has limited Census canvassing, many Orange County residents have yet to be counted. Census funding supports schools, healthcare, transportation and emergency services, as well as, distributes the number of government representatives throughout the United States. Through the Making My​ Community Count: OC Census Virtual Visual and Performing Arts Showcase, students learn about the importance of the Census and activate communities to participate in Census 2020 through social media.

We would like to Congratulate the winners of the 2020 Making My Community Count: OC Census Virtual Visual and Performing Arts Showcase:

  • Rachel Lee (Garden Grove Unified School District)
  • Elyana Ortiz (Anaheim Elementary School District)
  • Tea Takayama (Garden Grove Unified School District)
  • Felipe Tellez (Ocean View School District)
  • Zachary Tran (Garden Grove St. Columban School)
