Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. announced that his office will host the #BronxCounts Challenge.

The #BronxCounts Challenge is an on-line, borough-wide creative arts competition calling on Bronx middle or high school students to submit an original song, rap, spoken word, dance performance or artwork which educates and encourages their neighbors to participate in the upcoming 2020 Census count.

Borough President Diaz announced the #BronxCounts Challenge directly to students eligible to participate at Thomas C. Giordano Middle School 45 in Belmont on Monday, February 10, 2020.

"Without full participation in the 2020 Census our city and state will not see the political and budgetary representation we deserve,” said Borough President Diaz. “We want to get our youth involved, so that they can help to educate their families and their community about why The Bronx needs to have a strong showing in the Census and why everyone needs to be counted."

The #BronxCounts Challenge is open to current Bronx Middle and High School students. All submissions must include original artwork, mention The Bronx and include why it is important for everyone to be counted in the 2020 Census.

The top three submissions with the most "Likes" will be considered winners and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. will also use 1st Place winner’s entry for official promotion of the 2020 Census.

Entries must be posted on Instagram and/or Twitter with the hashtag #BronxCounts from February 24th through March 2nd. A flyer with the complete rules can be viewed at: https://on.nyc.gov/2OHEVdU.
