NPR Student Podcast Challenge


Are you a teacher with a classful of voices eager to be heard? Are you a student with a story longing to be told?

NPR Student Podcast Challenge– an opportunity for students across the country to create their own podcasts for a chance to appear on NPR later this spring. The Challenge is aimed at students between grades 5 and 12, and NPR Ed will provide a series of suggested prompts and a guide for student podcasters and their teachers. This is an exciting opportunity to add youth voices from around the country to the national conversation.

A panel of expert judges -- drawn from NPR, Member stations and the world of podcasting – will select two winning submissions, one from grades 5-8 and another from grades 9-12. Segments of the winning podcast will run in segments on Morning Edition and on All Things Considered in May of 2019.

Email your questions about the contest to: studentpodcastchallenge@npr.org;

if you you have questions about how to create a podcast email NHPR's Production Manager Andrew Parrella aparrella@nhpr.org.
