While candidates and media concentrated on issues that mattered to voters in the 2016 election season, teachers and students in our nation’s schools concentrated on issues that mattered to the next generation of voters.
Letters to the Next President 2.0 (L2P 2.0) empowered young people (13-18) to voice their opinions and ideas on the issues that mattered to them in the 2016 election and was built by teachers for teachers and students. The project also engaged a range of partners interested in supporting youth civic participation.
Letters to the Next President 2.0 opened for submissions on August 17, 2016 and remained open for publishing through Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017. This website will remain open for the reading and sharing of letters.
Letters to the Next President was originally created by the National Writing Project with support from Google during the 2008 US Presidential Campaign.
