As part of a unit on building— and prioritizing— listening skills, the entire 6th Grade formed teams to develop original, research-based podcasts for submission to National Public Radio's 2019 Student Podcast Challenge. (See below for a full article on the listening unit in 4th-6th Grade info class.)

Of nearly 6,000 submissions, two winners were selected: one for high school and one for middle school grades. In a letter to teachers Julie Rooney and Karenn Ressa, NPR announced that while Green Vale did not win first prize, a GVS podcast had received an honorable mention.
