I know that many of you read The New York Times daily. Here is your chance to get published by the Grey Lady. The New York Times is running their Fourth Annual New York Times Summer Reading Contest. From their Learning Network blog:

“Here’s how it works: Each week from June 14 to Aug. 16, teenagers 13 to 19 years old are invited to choose any piece in The New York Times they like and write to tell us why it interested them. We will then choose a weekly favorite to feature.”

It’s pretty simple, each Friday throughout the summer they will post on their blog the prompt, “What Interested You Most in The Times This Week?” You respond in the comments section and on the following Monday they will publish the winning submission. The full guidelines can be found in this post.

I'm a high school librarian. I love it when I find that essential source that didn't seem like it existed.
