Submit To The Student Podcast Challenge Here

Editor's note: We've heard from a few people that they've had trouble uploading their submissions through SoundCloud. While SoundCloud remains the primary method that we ask you to use to upload your submission, we will also allow submissions through Podbean and Anchor. When you fill out the Submission Form, please provide a link to your podcast on the platform that you have used. Please reach out to studentpodcastchallenge@npr.org with any questions or concerns.

Submissions close on March 15, 2021 at 11:59PM EST.

Step 1: Read the entry requirements. Podcasts must be between three and eight minutes long. Read more here. Teachers are welcome to enter more than one podcast on behalf of their students using separate entry forms for each.

Step 2: Get permission from a parent or legal guardian of each student who worked on the project. Please read through the rules to learn exactly what you'll need permission for. There's no need to send us your permission forms — but you'll need to verify that you have them in order to enter.

Step 3: Upload to SoundCloud. You'll need to make it publicly viewable and downloadable, so our judges can listen.

(Need help putting the podcast on SoundCloud and changing the privacy settings? Find guidance here and here.)

Step 4: Fill out the form below. Please enter your name (not your student's) in the name field. Within a few minutes of submitting, you should get an email that we received the entry. (If you don't see the form please click here.)
