Throwback Summer

Throwback Summer was a storytelling contest organized by Caring Across Generations, an advocacy group for aging Americans, to celebrate Grandparents Day in the summer of 2014. The project gathered user-submitted photographs and short narratives about grandparents or other significant older adults, which were submitted in contest categories such as “Best Dressed,” “Most Talented,” “Most Inspiring,” and “Ahead of Their Time.” The contest and storytelling project is particularly appropriate to social media, and many of the submitted photos and stories circulated on social media platforms.
