Our fourth annual Student Voices Project brought in letters from 290 middle and high school students from 15 schools and educational venues in seven different U.S. states and two foreign countries. We selected 30 honorees whose submissions are featured here. This year we asked students to write a letter to the next president of the United States suggesting what they think he should focus on during his first year.
