Lowndes wins Week 1 of Census Bowl

Lowndes County defeated Conecuh County in the 2020 Census Bowl and will now face Macon County in Week 2. 

The online “Census Bowl” gives participating counties an opportunity to win $65,000 for the county’s public school system.

According to the census website, “each week, counties will face each other in a bracket system. And each week, only the most dedicated will move ahead.”

Each county was awarded $1,500 to promote census participation. The county with the week’s highest increase in participation will move to the next round.

Week 2 results will be announced Wednesday, Sept. 16.
