Media Advisory — National 2010 Census Road Tour Heads to UNC vs. Ga. Tech Game
The nationwide 2010 Census Portrait of America Road Tour will stop in Chapel Hill, N.C., for the North Carolina vs. Georgia Tech men's basketball game. Fans are invited to learn about the census through an educational, engaging and interactive experience that brings the 2010 Census to life -- creating a "portrait of America."
The Road Tour's national vehicle, nicknamed "Mail It Back," began its cross-country tour last week from New York City to exhibit at more than 800 events nationwide. The Road Tour will attempt to motivate America's growing and increasingly diverse population to complete and mail back the 10-question census form when it arrives in mailboxes March 15-17.
