How to influence President Obama (when you're only 10)

How do you get the attention of the President of the United States of America? When you're just an ordinary citizen?

And you're only in the fifth grade?

When federal budget cuts threatened their tour of the White House, school children in Loxahatchee, Florida, had an idea. To get a message through to President Obama, they made him a video.

More specifically, they made a scribe video.

With a little help from their teachers, the fifth-graders filmed their pleas to reinstate the tour. They topped and tailed the footage with whiteboard animation.

"Dear President Obama. We know that you're real busy. But if you could take two minutes to watch our video, we would greatly appreciate it…"

In our opinion - these children deserve to have their tour! Credit to the teachers at Frontier Elementary for helping their students be creative in their communication. We hope that the message gets through.
