Submissions are open NOW through March 31.
We’re inviting students around the country to create a podcast, then — with the help of a teacher — compete for a chance to win our grand prize and have your work appear on NPR.
Be a part of the first-ever NPR Student Podcast Challenge.
The contest is a podcast submission contest where 5th – 12th grade teachers can submit an audio file created by their student(s) for an opportunity to (a) have NPR and/or station reporters come to their school to meet and interview them and their student(s) and (b) have the winning podcast discussed in a news segment that will appear on an episode of NPR’s All Things Considered or Morning Edition.
