NPR's STUDENT PODCAST CHALLENGE

NPR's fourth annual Student Podcast Challenge is back and now open for middle and high school students. There are three competitions, including opportunities for middle schoolers, high schoolers, and college students pursuing their associate's or bachelor's degrees.

 

For each contest the challenge is the same: produce a podcast between three and eight minutes on a topic, issue, or story of their choosing. In addition to having their work featured on national NPR programs, winning middle-, high-school and college students will also have NPR journalists report features on their entries.

HAPPY CAMPER HANGOUTS!

Are you looking for opportunities to bring both fun and a sense of community into your or your child's life?

 

Happy Trails for Kids would like to invite you or your youth to join them at Happy Camper Hangouts, a virtual program that meets on the last Thursday of every month.  Campers can participate in fun, safe, and accessible extracurricular activities - like music, dance, athletics, creative arts, martial arts. 

Each session also consists of “cabin time”, which gives youth an opportunity to connect in a smaller group and build a community with their peers and camp counselors, all of whom have had lived experience in foster care.

JOIN Happy Trails for their first Hangout on Thursday, January 27th, 2022!
