On Sunday, April 28th, 2019, I received an email from National Public Radio, NPR, regarding the six podcasts submitted to the first NPR Podcast Challenge. NPR received nearly 6,000 entries from all over the country and had to pick two winning entries, one for grades 5-8 and one for grades 9-12.
We did not win, however our “Bathroom Passes” was a finalist in the middle school category. Nico’s, Ramona’s, and Caitlyn’s Bathroom Passes can be heard on Soundcloud:
Also we received two honorable mentions for our submissions “Preparing for Sixth Grade” and “Save the Horses”.
“Preparing for Sixth Grade” was written and produced by Jackson, Riley, and Iris and “Save the Horses” was written and produced by Josie and Emily.
All six of our entries can be heard on Soundcloud:
