Project Hometown: Diverse Perspectives, Stronger Communities

The Chicago Fed asked youth ages 14 to 18 who attend school in the city of Chicago to share their perspectives on how the pandemic affected their communities. Teens created short videos about the challenges they and their communities face, and where they've found inspiration in such difficult times. The contest entries provide a candid glimpse into Chicago teens' lives during the pandemic.
