Update, July 21: You can submit your response for week 7 here.
Welcome to the sixth week of our 14th Annual Summer Reading Contest.
This competition is open to students aged 13 to 19 from all over the world. To enter, submit a response by 9:00 a.m. EST on July 21 which answers the questions “What caught your eye in The New York Times this week?” For what?”
If you are 13 or older and live in the United States, or 16 or older from anywhere else in the world, post your answer in the comments section. If you are a teacher, parent, or guardian of a student or child between the ages of 13 and 15 living outside the United States, see the bottom of this article for more details on how to submit.
Responses should be 1,500 characters (approximately 250 words) or less.
Or, maybe you’ve discovered stories in the Style, International, Sports, Business, Magazine, Arts, USA, Travel, Science, Health, or Smarter Life sections like…
Or, maybe you came across an interesting essay in the Opinion section, like…
Anything that caught your eye, tell us about it.
You can choose from anything published in print or on nytimes.com in 2023, including videos, podcasts, graphics, and photographs. (In your response, please include the URL or title of the article you choose.)
We’ll be posting this question every Friday from today until August 11, and you’ll have until the following Friday morning to respond with your choices. Then we will close this message and open a new one with the same question.
We will choose at least one favorite answer to be featured on our site each week. This week’s winners will be announced on August 1.
Feel free to enter each week, but we only allow one submission per person per week.
