Defining America: Next up - The Southeast!

As part of iReport’s cultural census project, we’re targeting a different U.S. region here on the blog in hopes of boosting participation from the area. We’ve already heard from New Englanders and Pacific Northwesterners, and today we're focusing on the Southeastern U.S.!


We really appreciate all the submissions we’ve received from Georgia and Florida already. We can’t wait to see iReports from South Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. We want to cover every state in the country so that the census is represented accurately. And if you’re not in the Southeast, but have friends or family in any of those states, we encourage you to send them this blog post and spread the word!


Richgaboy in LaGrange, Georgia, has already represented the Southeast. He took part in the “Eat dinner” assignment and shared his passion for all kinds of food, including how he likes to keep it simple when whipping up healthy meals at home, by preparing Pita bread and hummus.



Here’s a look at some of the other assignments in the cultural census:


Share a photo
Take a self-portrait. Get creative!


Read aloud
Tape yourself reading a standard passage.


Write this down
Scan or snap a photo of your handwriting.


Get around
Show us how you generally get around town.

I love little baby ducks, old pick-up trucks, slow-moving trains, and rain

I love little country streams, sleep without dreams, sunday school in may,

And hay

And i love you too

 

I love leaves in the wind, pictures of my friends, birds in the world, and squirrels

I love coffee in a cup, little fuzzy pups, bourbon in a glass, and grass and i love you too

 

I love honest open smiles, kisses from a child, tomatoes on the vine, and onions

I love winners when they cry, losers when they try, music when it's good, and life

And i love you too

Make Yourselves Heard New England!

 

We hear from the Southeast all of the time.  But no one ever asks anything about the Northeast.

Hi everyone, I am from the great state of Kentucky.  Culture in the southeast? Right here! Southern Hospitality? Right here!  We have rolling hills, beautiful flowers that line roadways and houses, great food (Ky Hot Brown), and yes this state does live up to its nickname as the Bluegrass state (yep we got it).  I have lived in this state my entire life of forty plus years, and I can honestly say, the center piece to America's Heartland.
