WATCH & LISTEN: This I Believe Meet the Authors 2022

Meet the Authors
NPR Illinois 91.9 UIS

Meet the Authors celebrates the 10 chosen essayists from this year's This I Believe Essay Program. During the event the 10 chosen authors read their essays. A panel discussion was also held with authors to get to know them better.

This I Believe Illinois is NPR Illinois' annual essay program for Illinois high school seniors. An expression of where their minds are as they prepare to enter the adult world. This I Believe was started by radio journalist Edward R. Murrow in 1951 to allow anyone able to distil the guiding principles by which they lived. Special thank you to our sponsors: The Rotary Club of Springfield Sunrise, State Journal-Register, BLH Computers, KEB, Marine Bank, and Roni Mohan of RE/MAX Professionals Springfield. Thank you to Cody Pope and the UIS Office of Electronic Media for providing technical assistance and recording the program.
