Go on a Virtual 2020 Census Scavenger Hunt with IAFC!

IAFC is hosting a Virtual Scavenger Hunt, #IAFCtreasures, to spread the word about the positive impact the Census has on your community.

 Why Is the Census Good?

Did you know that for every person who is counted in the Census, your community could be awarded $20,567 to use for essential programs and services?

That's why it's important that every household count all their members and return their Census form.

Have Fun Getting the Word Out

We've created the 2020 Census VIRTUAL SCAVENGER HUNT game as a fun way for you to help us get the word out about the good things that happen when people take the Census. To play, all you have to do is hunt for Census activities or assets, post them to your social media pages, and submit your findings to us.

After you've collected five assets or activities,


email the title of each Census treasure you found, along with the corresponding pictures.

Have fun hunting!


Help us tell all your family and friends about the good things the Census does by posting your #IAFCtreasures' activities to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
