See the writer's challenge: "Letters from the White House" at http://www.readingrockets.org/books/fun/writingcontest. In a variation of this challenge, write a short story, poem, or letter, written from a young person's point of view. The young person should be someone connected to the First Family or someone who has had a direct or brief moment of contact with the Presidential Family. It can be a writing by an actual young First Family member from the past or present. Include something of importance to the young writer about the historical time in which the chosen First Family lives or has lived. You may also write something from the viewpoint of another young person who is or was somehow in contact with the young members of the First Family. It may be, for example, a young person whose relative works at the White House, or someone from the public who wants to tell a young First Family member a special concern, with the hope that this concern will be handled.
