Media Advisory — 2010 Census Road Tour Comes to Ohio State University

What:
The 2010 Census Portrait of America Road Tour is part of the largest civic outreach and awareness campaign in U.S. history -- stopping and exhibiting at more than 800 events nationwide. From local parades and festivals to major sporting events, the Road Tour will attempt to motivate America's growing and increasingly diverse population to complete and mail back the 10-question census form.

Traveling for a total of 1,547 days and more than 150,000 miles across the country, 13 road tour vehicles will provide the public with an educational, engaging and interactive experience that brings the 2010 Census to life.

At each event across the country, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the 2010 Census and understand the benefits a complete count can bring to communities everywhere; view a sample 2010 Census form and learn how the collected information is used; and contribute stories and photos to the Portrait of America project to explain why "I count!" and view messages from other road tour participants.

When:
Tuesday, April 6, 2 to 5 p.m. (EDT)
Who:
Kevin Boyce, state treasurer and Ohio Complete Count Committee chairman
Ben Anthony, Ohio State undergraduate student government president
Rimar Villasenor, Ohio State director for government relations
Where:
