What do you think is NASA’s greatest exploration achievement in the past 50 years, and why? That is the question NASA is asking students for the Second Annual 21st Century Explorer Podcast Competition. Students will create an audio recording or video — running one minute or less — with their answer to the question.
The contest is open to U.S. citizens, ages 11 to 18. Entries will be judged on content, creativity, execution, clarity and overall impression. The 15 finalists in each format (audio and video) and each age category (ages 11-14 and ages 15-18) will be displayed on the contest Web site, where the public will vote for and select a “People’s Choice” winner. Prizes will also be awarded for first, second and third place. Winners will be announced on the Web site Feb. 28, 2008.
Entries are being accepted now through Jan. 4, 2008, or when the first 1,000 entries in each category are received.
