Start brainstorming your podcast ideas over the holiday break…

As of January 1, 2019, students 5th through 12th grade will be offered a chance to participate and compete in NPR’s podcast contest. The National Public Radio is a non profit, news organization, and this contest is a good way to get students interested in radio and podcasting.

The podcast must be between 3 to 12 minutes, cannot have music, and must be submitted by a teacher. Submissions for the challenge close on March 31, 2019. 

Mrs. Panagos, a multimedia design teacher, said, “The website has helpful tutorials for anyone unsure how to make a podcast. If you have a smartphone, you have all you need really, though you can certainly use higher end software and mics. If anyone is interested and needs help, they can stop by C126 during their lunch with questions or for feedback on something they’ve made.”

Sophomore Bree Soto said, “I think it’s a good opportunity for students that enjoy listening/making podcasts. If they’re especially passionate about their topic, I think it’s a really good opportunity for them to grow.” Katie Tanner also said, “I feel that this is a really good opportunity for kids who are interested in making podcasts because if they win, it offers lots of exposure and gives them a platform with lots of listeners.” Gracie Beck voiced her support, “Yes, it is a good opportunity for people who are interested in this. It allows students to do something they enjoy, gain experience, and they could possibly have their podcast aired, which would be a huge accomplishment.”

Mrs. Panagos will submit the entry for any student interested in this contest, though other Bob Jones teachers may choose to participate as well. Winners will be announced April 23, 2019. Click the link for more info:
