Counting Centre County

The 2010 Census is upon us, and five Penn State students are determined to count every man, woman, and child in Centre County.

Laura Peck, Jennifer Wallington, Emily Franklin, Kate Wiedie, and Emily Simmons formed “Count Centre County” to compete in this year’s Public Relations Student Society of America’s National Bateman Competition. They’re especially targeting groups with low return rates, namely rural populations and college students.

Count Centre County, a community outreach organization, will host informative events during the month of February to maximize the county’s participation in the Census this year. The group will make appearances in the HUB and residence halls, so be sure to participate.

Students comprise roughly three quarters of State College, so a lack of Census participation on our part could drastically alter the results for Centre County.

Check out the group’s Facebook and Twitter pages for more details.
