Mrs. Sidesinger thought that the NPR student podcast challenge would be a fun learning opportunity for kids. Interested students from her class met after school to develop this podcast, which was recently submitted to NPR.
After a vote, the students decided on the topic of "teen suicide prevention." They researched, wrote, and performed this podcast with the help of Mrs. Sidesinger and Aly Wise. Mr. Croshaw helped with the recording.
Thank you to the following students for participating: Isabelle Miera, Erik Christensen, Ian Butler, Ethan Ilizaliturri, Kayla Wells, Teagan Kay, Chloe Vanderlinden, Allison Perri, Zoey Keefer, Sara Watt, and Raegan Simmons.
This contest was for students between 5th and 12th grade. Winners will be announced in April. The winning podcast submissions will be featured in segments on "Morning Edition" or "All Things Considered."
