Students have far exceeded expectations in a recent assignment to create a podcast that tells a community story.

The podcasts were recently submitted to the National Public Radio (NPR) Student Podcast Challenge, and they count for a grade in the Integrated English III and US History classes at Elizabethton High School.

Winning submissions will air on NPR’s Morning Edition or All Things Considered and will be announced this month.

To prepare, students researched topics covering local history and standout individuals in our community. Experts joined students in the classroom to help them develop professional and communication skills, such as how to ask quality questions, make eye contact, shake hands, and follow up after an interview.
