How do you put a year like 2020 into words?

Decades from now, how will you remember it?

They’re tough questions, but curators Sam Vong and Shannon Perich at the National Museum of American History think the answers will be important for generations to come. To help with that mission, they’re collecting written submissions from people across the country, describing how they experienced this year.

“As historians, what we really want to do is document what’s going on before it kind of escapes from us,” said Vong.

The museum has put out an open invitation to submit, with the hope that those recollections will preserve for the future the experiences of a year that really was like no other. You can submit your own story here.
