Summer Reading Contest, Week 2: What Got Your Attention in The Times This Week? Obtain US

Update, June 23: You can submit your response for Week 3 here.


Welcome to Week Two of our 14th Annual Summer Reading Contest.

This contest is open to students 13-19 from anywhere in the world. To participate, submit a response by 9 a.m. Eastern on June 23 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 a teacher, parent or guardian of a student or child who is 13-15 and lives outside the United States, see the bottom of this post for details on how to submit.

Responses must be 1,500 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 2023, including articles, essays, videos, photos, podcasts or graphics.

Need more details? The contest rules are all here, and you can read the work of last year’s winners here. A quick overview, though:

  • You can choose from anything published in the print paper or on nytimes.com in 2023, including videos, podcasts, graphics and photographs. (In your response, please include the URL or headline of the piece you pick.)

  • We’ll post this question each Friday from today through Aug. 11, and you’ll have until the next Friday morning to respond with your picks. Then we’ll close that post and open a new one with the same question.

  • We’ll choose at least one favorite answer to feature on our site each week. Winners from this week will be announced on July 5.

  • Feel free to participate each week, but we allow only one submission per person per week.

  • The contest is open to students ages 13 to 19 from anywhere in the world. 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 comments section. If you are a teacher, parent or guardian of a student or child who is between the ages of 13 and 15 and lives outside of the United States, then you must submit an entry on the student’s behalf using the form below. All entries from the comments section and the form below will be judged together.
