The idea of this campaign is to create original memes that celebrate Child Support. Entries must be original ideas using existing themes or original photos. Many times, this can not only be humorous, but can also reflect our daily mission in a positive and meaningful way to the public. The use humor and pop culture prowess can be a powerful tool in Child Support’s ongoing effort to enlighten the public of our rich calling. Our hope is to initiate a purposeful conversation about child support and the services we offer to the public.
