The deadline to apply to be a United States Census Bureau Statistics in Schools ambassador is quickly approaching. They are seeking educator ambassadors to teach pre-K through grade 12 students about the importance of a complete and accurate census count.
The Statistics in Schools program provides educators with free and interesting activities for classroom use. Ambassadors can use the materials in the classrooms and the community to share information leading up to the 2020 Census and how it can help determine where some federal funds are distributed for the next 10 years, including for school programs like:
- Special education
- Teacher training
- School lunch assistance
- Head Start
- Title I funds
- After-school programs
Teachers from pre-K through grade 12 are encouraged to apply. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Statistics in Schools, ideal candidates are current teachers with an interest in collaborating with their community through social media and leadership.
For more information on becoming an ambassador, email CLMSO.SISambassador@census.gov to apply by October 24.
