What has 2020 looked like for you? Imagine through the eyes of your parents, grandparents, younger siblings, and your friends. Did you miss prom this year? Partake in a virtual graduation? Skip a sports season, get a new dog, or become Tik Tok famous? We want to hear about, and so do future generations of teens.
The Covid Diaries is a project from the California State Library as a way to archive the diverse stories and experiences created from the current pandemic. In support of the project and to help spark creativity, we are presenting a series of “Teens Making History” virtual workshops for teens 13+.
