From June 24th to June 28th, DoSomething.org and the White House teamed up to let young people voice their concerns about student loan debt via text message.

For five days, young people from across the country texted "PREZ" to 38383 to ask President Obama questions about student loan debt and each day one question was selected and answered by the President or Vice President.

A total of 54,503 questions were sent to President Obama (compared to his recent Reddit AMA which had ~10,000 questions).
