Every year since 2010, The Learning Network has invited teenagers around the world to add The New York Times to their summer reading lists. So far, more than 70,000 have done so.


If you are looking for ways to offer students more “voice and choice,” we hope our open-ended contest can help. Every week, we ask participants to choose something in The Times that has piqued their interest, and then tell us why. At the end of the week, judges from the Times newsroom pick their favorite responses, and we publish them. It’s that simple.


Though our goals include some that appear on many educators’ lists — helping students become more aware of the world and their place in it; learning how to navigate sophisticated nonfiction; and practicing writing for an audience — we also hope that students will realize that reading the newspaper can be fun. As you’ll see in the guidelines below, they can choose anything that was published on NYTimes.com in 2021. The subject matter isn’t important; we just care about why they chose it.


For your information, each work submission should be original and sponsored by a high school teacher. The competition, moreover, annually takes place from June 11 to Aug 19, 2022. Check out here to find out about the competition in great detail.
