Here’s how it works: Put together a podcast with your class or extracurricular group. Then your teacher can submit it to us.

This contest is for teachers with students between 5th and 12th grade. Each podcast should be between three and 12 minutes long.

We’ll announce our winners in April. The winning podcast submissions will be featured in segments on Morning Edition or All Things Considered.
