Fort Mill offers simple incentive for Census

FORT MILL, SC (WBTV) - In the 2000 Census, the two of Fort Mill ranked 5th in the state of South Carolina for most census forms returned.

This year, the town is going for an even better ranking and they're offering an incentive. A t-shirt might not seem like a jackpot prize, but it's not really supposed to be. Assistant town manager Joe Cronin says the idea is to take a picture of yourself filling out the forms and send it in for a Fort Mill T-shirt.

The concept has already drawn about a dozen responses from locals and Cronin says, it's building on the idea of a strong community.
