Extraordinary Stories of Ordinary Life



Hey Teens! Tell Your Story by May 31

The deadline for our Teenage Diaries contest is just around the corner.


Teenage Diaries Contest

Radio Diaries is looking for the next generation of Teenage Diarists, so we’re hosting a contest to find the country’s most talented teenage storytellers.


Share Your Teenage Diary on Cowbird

To commemorate the “sweet 16” of the acclaimed Teenage Diaries project—where young people around the country are given tape recorders to report on their own lives for public radio—Radio Diaries and NPR are now teaming up with the storytelling platform Cowbird to gather new stories written, recorded and photographed by teens.
