Dear Mr. President...
If you had an opportunity to write a letter to the next President of the United States, what would you say?
So far over 5,000 teens across the United States have shared their concerns and ideas as part of the Writing Our Future: Letters to the Next President project. The project is sponsored by Google Docs and the National Writing Project, and is a way that classes learn about civic engagement and improve their writing skills at the same time.
The site can be searched by region, if you want to know what other teens that live near you are thinking about, or you can search by a particular topic that interests you.
I'm really looking forward to reading these letters.
And remember to vote on Tuesday if you can. If you're not old enough to vote, then encourage everyone you know who is registered to cast their ballots!
