As students head back to school amidst a particularly intense fall election season, educators across the nation have come together to launch the online publishing site, Letters to the Next President 2.0 (L2P 2.0).

An initiative that allows young people (13 – 18) to research, write and make media letters, L2P 2.0 gives voice to the opinions on issues that matter to youth in the coming election. With the opening of the school year, teens’ submissions have already begun to appear online at http://www.letters2president.org.

Educators or adult mentors create accounts on the L2P 2.0 website and then invite their students to register and begin crafting letters in written or multimedia formats.

This publishing website will stay open for student submissions through November 8, and all published letters are available to the public now through the new president’s first 100 days in office in early 2017.
