The New York Times Learning Network has just announced their fifth annual summer reading contest.

Here’s a brief description from them:

Every Friday from June 13 through Aug. 15 we’ll pose the same question: What interested you most in The Times this week?

Anyone 13 to 19 years old from anywhere in the world can post an answer, and contestants can choose from any Times article, essay, video, interactive or photograph published in 2014, on any topic they like…

Every Tuesday we’ll choose winners, and publish them on the blog.

It’s a great way to help combat the “summer slide.”
