U-M announces Census Video Contest winners

News Service

Winners of a video contest designed to boost student participation in the 2010 U.S. census were announced Wednesday by the Institute for Social Research, which sponsored the contest along with the Office of the Provost.

“We were delighted with the quality of the entries,” says ISR researcher Lisa Neidert, who helped coordinate the contest with a team of ISR colleagues. “And we hope that the videos will be used widely to encourage college students to fill out the census forms sent to their campus-area residences.”

All the videos and information about the producers are available at census.umich.edu.

Popular vote winners are:

  • First Place with a prize of $1,000, “The Census on Michigan Time,” submitted by the U-M College Democrats. Joe Sandman, Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, producer; Sam Morykwas, LSA, technical editor; and Nina Bhatacharya, Public Policy; Brendan Campbell, Charlotte Keeler, Josh VeVasseur, Samuel Marvin and John Weiss, all LSA, actors.

  • Second Place, with a prize of $500, “Census 2010,” produced by Shannon Koshanno, School of Art & Design.

  • Third Place, with a prize of $250, “What’s Your Number,” produced by Edward Tang, College of Engineering (CoE).

  • Fourth Place, with a prize of $150, “Imagine,” submitted by Nicholas Peters, CoE, affiliated with the North American Student Service Team.

  • Fifth Place, with a prize of $100, “No Funds, No Fun,” submitted by Chandler Macocha, CoE.

The Critic’s Choice Award went to UM-Dearborn student Tom Wille of the Campus Video Network at UM-Dearborn for “The Informed Student,” and the Honorable Mention Award went to LSA student Robert Lott for “If the Process Were Any Easier…”

The awards ceremony will be at noon Tuesday in Room 6050 at ISR.
