Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal law, or substantially interfere with any agency's ability to perform its statutory obligations.

Each proposed information collection, grouped by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. new, revision, extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden.

Abstract: The Department is requesting OMB approval for a generic clearance for ED's outreach contests. ED's Office of Communications and Outreach plans to host approximately four outreach contests each year as part of an ongoing effort to reach out to the general public on priority issues in the Department's national education agenda. Each contest will aim to capture and promote improving public education from works (i.e. videos, essays, etc.) made by individuals in a specific sub-group (i.e. teachers, principals, etc) or from the general public. The individual contests will be submitted under this generic clearance for approval as they occur throughout the year.
