Rap Writing Contest

The New York Times Learning Network is sponsoring Flocabulary’s Year in Rap writing contest to ring in the new year. Students aged 13–19 are encouraged to write a rap that highlights the year’s biggest news stories. To compose their rap, students should choose at least four important New York Times stories from one of the news categories listed on the contest’s web page. They may choose to focus on a smaller topic found within a section in The Times. For example, they can write a rap based on the Black Lives Matter movement, or on one of the 2016 presidential candidates, rather than the whole range of national or political news this year. Winning entries will be published on The Learning Network’s website.

Deadline: January 10, 2017, for entries
