The Lake County Complete Count Committee sponsored the poster design contest for Lake County students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade to help inform citizens about the 2010 U.S. Census. On hand for the presentation before the School Board on Monday was Robert Peraza, Chairman of the Lake County Complete Count Committee.

“The U.S. Constitution requires the national census,” Peraza said. “Every person living in the United States must be counted. An accurate census count guides the distribution annually of more than $4 billion in federal funding to local communities.”
