This year, #TheGreatListen is back -- learn more about how to get involved.

StoryCorps, the pioneering oral history project, announces The Great Thanksgiving Listen 2016, which will engage high school students across America in recording conversations with a grandparent or another elder over the holiday weekend.

The Great Thanksgiving Listen 2016 follows StoryCorps' highly successful inaugural edition of the initiative last year. More than 100,000 Americans took part in the drive to preserve the stories and voices of an entire generation over the Thanksgiving weekend. 

Using the free StoryCorps mobile app, participants will upload their interviews to StoryCorps.me and they will be archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.

Be sure to listen to Storycorps every week on WITF part of your Friday Morning Edition.
