I am on a quest to become a contestant on the Puzzle on the Air segment of National Public Radio‘s morning news program Weekend Edition Sunday. During this segment, New York Times crossword puzzle editor and NPR puzzlemaster Will Shortz leads one lucky contestant on an on-air challenge of wordplay.
It’s remarkably easy to enter. Just solve the listener challenge given on the program and submit your answer to http://www.npr.org/puzzle before 3:00 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday. The contestant is chosen at random from all of the correct answers received before that week’s deadline.
