St Cloud student gets national recognition for her podcast


Have you ever created a podcast? Have you ever thought about it? Technology has evolved at a very rapid pace this year, and some local students have the chance to learn how to create them and change the world.


Ruth Thom, Personalized Learning Coordinator at Stride Academy, submitted 4 applications from students at her school to the NPR Student Podcast Challenge. There were over 2,600 entries from middle and high school students across the country, and one of our own students was one of 150 other students to receive an honorable mention for his podcast.


Juwariye Barrio, in 8th grade at Stride, received honorable mention for his podcast titled “Understanding the Hijab”. You can listen to his podcast below.



Juwariye Barrio was in Kenya when she received the recognition, but her father, Hidik Ibrahim and multilingual teacher Suzy Mcintyre, as well as executive director Eric Williams and principal Gwen Anderson and other teachers who helped Juwariye with the podcast , all gathered during a Zoom call to congratulate her on the accomplishment.


The NPR Student Podcast Challenge gave students the chance to learn how to create podcasts, with a grand prize for their podcast featured on NPR’s Morning edition Where All things Considered.

I will speak with Ruth Thom today on “It Matters with Kelly Cordes” at 10:15 am on AM1240 and 95.3 FM or streaming on www.wjon.com.
