    Today’s American teens live in a world enveloped by technology; the internet, Facebook, email, twitter, and cell phone communication have become a central force that fuels the rhythm of daily life.  This year we will focus on what teens are doing to be more socially responsible, from greening of the environment, to how they stay informed through social media. Get ready for another captivating day filled with brilliant teens and the adults who are trying to guess which way this generation will lead them.
