Each year we take a break from The Week in Rap and get a little more ambitious. We release The Year in Rap. In anticipation of the 2011 Year in Rap (which will drop Friday the 16th), we partnered with our friends at the New York Times Learning Network to create a contest.
- Do you have what it takes to summarize a year’s worth of news on one topic?
- Do you dream in rhyme?
- Are you 13-25 years old?
- Ask yourself:
Then you can win glory!
Learn more and enter the contest. And for those who don’t know, The Learning Network is a free New York Times blog that features lots of great content for engaging students with current events – whether that’s through reading, writing or critical thinking. Definitely worth a look and a follow.
For those who need a little inspiration, here are the 2009 and 2010 editions of the Year in Rap.
