The NPR Student Podcast Challenge, which has drawn more than 75,000 students around the country into the world of audio storytelling, is back for its third year.

Here’s how it works:

  • Put together a podcast with your class or extracurricular group. Then your teacher can submit it to NPR.
  • This contest is for teachers with students between 5th and 12th grade. Each podcast should be between three and 8 minutes long.
  • The winning podcast submissions will be featured in segments on Morning Edition or All Things Considered.
  • The Contest submission period begins at 12:00 a.m. EST on January 1, 2021, and ends at 11:59 p.m. EDT on March 15, 2021.
