Oklahaoma HS students' "Candidate Chats"

Totally love the story about two Oklahoma high school students, Luke Leifeste and Chinyere Agbai. Candidate Chats began as a summer project. The students thought that they'd be done with their youth-focused candidate interviews by the time that school started in August. It has since turned into a months-long endeavor that has earned them 375 fans on Facebook and nearly 900 views on their YouTube channel.

At the end of each interview Luke & Chinyere ask the candidates a youth culture question, to find out how in touch the candidates are with the youth. They asked if the candidates are on the side of Notorious B.I.G. or Tupac Shakur, and asked the candidates to pick between "Team Edward" and "Team Jacob." (That's a Twilight reference; I missed it.) The candidates' answers are hilarious. This one was my favorite:
