If asked to answer that question in ten words or less, how would you respond?

"My cancer coming back"

"Losing my job"

"Someone hurting my kids"

"My daughter's employment status"

This summer, the Tenn Words display will be traveling throughout East Tennessee to find out what's on your mind.  

Your answers to the question "What keeps you up at night?" will be collected and posted to the wall of the display so others can find out more about the real concerns and hopes shared by their neighbors.  The responses will then be cataloged by students from the University of Tennessee College of Social Work.  Trends and outliers will be identified and the results will be used by WUOT's award-winning news department to inform its coverage of the issues that affect this region.

Look for the Tenn Words traveling display May 28 at the Pubs 4 Public Radio event at Suttree's  in downtown Knoxville.  And stay tuned for more opportunities to participate in this ground-breaking project!
