The summer challenge is complete! Thank you to all who participated and submitted videos. Please keep a look out for the challenge next summer!

This summer, we invited people to explore Lincoln’s words with us and submit a video of themselves speaking them. In Lincoln’s words, we discovered encouragement, inspiration, and a model for perseverance. We invite you to be encouraged by a few of the videos submitted.
