Were you born on an Inauguration Day (January 20)? To mark Inauguration Day 2013, Marketplace and the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at USC are looking for everyday citizens to share their stories of how life has changed since the day they were born — and a president was sworn in.

In a special digital and audio project, we’ll track how the views of these “Inauguration Day babies” have changed over the years, and we’ll hear them tell stories of the important events in their lives.

If you were born on an Inauguration Day and you’d like be a part of our special project, fill out this form or leave a comment.
