2021 Contest Theme:
Consider All Things
In early February, NPR’s longest-standing news show, “All Things Considered” received a critique from 8-year-old dino-lover Leo Shilda. In a short letter composed at the encouragement of his mother, Leo expressed his dissatisfaction with the program’s news-only focus, which excluded cooler things like dinosaurs.
While it’s true the term “senator” has appeared more than 20 thousand times over the program's 50-year span, in comparison to “dinosaur,” which has shown up 294 times, all of public media endeavors to help us explore new ideas, expand our cultural awareness and recognize diverse perspectives.
So, this year we’re asking you to show us what home, community or world looks like when we consider all things.
Maybe you should call your show Newsy Things Considered, since I don't get to hear about all the things. Or please talk more about dinosaurs and cool things.
We are pleased to present the Junior Tier winner of this year’s Print Radio art contest.
Wynnum Johnson with "Augustynolophus In The Wild."
Wynnum's dino art will be turned into a neck bandana that will be made available as part of CapRadio’s fall membership drive (September 25 through October 7, 2021) and can be received when becoming a member or donating at the required level.
We have unfortunately canceled the General Tier due to low entry. Submitters will be contacted directly. We greatly apologize for this and plan to extend our public service support of the arts through future opportunities.
