The Fifth Annual New York Times Summer
8th Grade only
Every Friday June 13 through Aug. 15, 2014
you can write in and tell us what you’re reading in The NY Times, and explain why it
interested you. We don’t care what you choose or whether you loved or hated it;
what we care about is what you have to say about why you picked it. You can choose
from anything published in the print paper or on NYTimes.com in 2014. And yes,
videos, graphics, slide shows and podcasts count. (In fact, one of our winners last
summer wrote about a photo.) Feel free to participate each week, but we allow only
one submission per person per week.
**The contest is open to teenagers only-- anyone from 13 to 19 years old.
Complete rules can be found @ The Learning Network
