2020 NPR Student Podcast Challenge

Jan 19, 2020

Got ideas? Got a recording device? Gather your best sound and go!

Aspiring podcasters from New Hampshire and across the country are invited to tell their unique stories as part of the 2020 Student Podcast Challenge.

With the help of their teachers, students from the 5th through 12th grades are invited to submit their best works. For inspiration, and to get an idea how it’s done, look to NHPR and its podcasts, including Outside/In and Civics 101.

March 24 is the deadline for entries. A panel of NPR hosts and journalists will take a listen to entries from across the country. One winner will be selected from grades 5-8, and another from grades 9-12, with winners announced in April. Segments from the winning podcasts will run nationally on NPR, in Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

New this year: a podcast about the challenge itself. Students and teachers can download the Student Podcast Challenge podcast to get tips on what makes a great story and how to produce them.
