Illinois Youth Media

Letters to the Future


Letters to the Future is a commissioned project by the City of Champaign, IL for its 150th anniversary celebration.  The city hired Illinois Public Media to teach youth to create a multimedia presentation featuring pioneering residents of Champaign talking about what Champaign was like back in the day, what they think it will be like in 2060 and advice they have for future residents.  The youth-produced piece will be shown at the Sesquicentennial's closing ceremony in Spring of 2011 and archived here.
