NPR has just announced that they are going to have a second year of their student podcast challenge (see The NPR Student Podcast Challenge Is Back!).

It’s actually a bit of a strange announcement – they say it will start in January, but they aren’t ready to announce its rules or share supporting resources yet.  I don’t really understand why they wouldn’t have just waited until they had all their ducks in a row before making the announcement.

Nevertheless, it will be a great opportunity for students, and I’m sure their resources will be helpful for anyone wanting to start a podcast – whether they compete or not.

You can see lots of related materials at The Best Resources For Teacher & Student Podcasting.
