BronxNet worked in partnership with the United States Census Bureau to highlight the importance of participating in the 2010 Census. Our 2009 – 14th Annual BETA (Bronx Excellence in Television Access) Awards was themed: "Every Voice Counts," representing all the possibilities that exist when Bronx residents utilize BronxNet to share their message as well as all the benefits that can result from participating in the census.
As we celebrated the winners and nominees of the 2009 BETA Awards, we encouraged and participation in the 2010 census. The independent public access producers who air programs on BronxNet do much to share important information with their viewing audiences. Many producers also found creative ways to inform viewers about the importance of the 2010 Census via their independently-produced programs.
