Voices & Creators


We invite all Summer Searchers – students, alumni, staff, and our partners & supporters – to submit original, creative content for the consideration of publication.

Whether an op-ed, a short film, a surrealist drawing, a week-long takeover of @summersearch, an in-depth feature article, or anything in between, this is your chance to share your stories, talents, ideas, and more with an audience of more than 15,000!

Your voice uplifts our mission, empowers our families, and promotes positive transformation where we work, learn, and live. Share it!
