To participate, submit your response here by July 9 at 9 a.m. Eastern. This week’s winners will be announced on July 20.
Welcome to Week Four of our 12th Annual Summer Reading Contest.
This contest is open to students 11-19 from anywhere in the world. To participate, submit a response by 9 a.m. Eastern on July 9 that answers the questions “What got your attention in The New York Times this week? Why?”
If you are 13 or older and live in the United States, or 16 or older from anywhere else in the world, post your response in the comment section. If you are the parent or the teacher of a child who is 11-12 years old and lives in the United States, or 11-15 and lives in another country, see the bottom of this post for details on how to submit on behalf of your child.
Responses must be 1500 characters — about 250 words — or fewer.
What should you choose? Well, as you know from the rules we’ve posted, you can pick anything published on NYTimes.com in 2021, including articles, essays, videos, photos, podcasts or infographics.
So what did you read, watch or listen to this week?
We hope you’ll click around NYTimes.com and find your own great articles, features and multimedia. But we also know that not everyone who participates has a Times subscription. Because all links to Times content from the student features on our site are free, every week we’ll try to help by posting interesting pieces from a variety of sections.
