Thank you so much for submitting to the NPR Student Podcast Challenge. This is the first year we’ve held the contest, and the response from teachers and students blew us away. We received nearly 6,000 entries from all over the country.
Journalists at NPR listened to every one of those podcasts to pick one winner from grades 5-8 and one winner from high school. Those will be announced in the coming days.
We’re emailing to let you and your students know that your submission(s) did not win. However, your entry "The Wrong Chat" was an honorable mention – our judges recognized it as a standout submission.
