For more information about the project, visit: http://www.digitalartsalliance.org/partnerships/nwp/letters2pres.html
Videos will be published to the Letters to the Next President site
(http://www.letters2president.org) as part of the growing national conversation on the state of the nation, civic literacies, student voice and the future of this country. More than 6,000 students participated in the initial Letters to the Next President campaign last fall - an NWP and Google sponsored project. Some of your students, in fact, may have submitted letters to the site.
