JOIN THE FUN!
The annual PBS KIDS Writers Contest is a national initiative designed to promote the advancement of children’s reading skills through hands-on, active learning. Partnering with PBS stations nationwide, the Contest encourages children in grades K-3 in communities across the country to celebrate the power of creating stories and illustrations by submitting their own original work.
HOW THE CONTEST WORKS
The Contest is structured the same as the Reading Rainbow Young Writers & Illustrators Contest of past years. Children in grades kindergarten through third are encouraged to write and illustrate stories and submit them to their local stations, which will select winners and award prizes. The PBS KIDS Writers Contest will be a LOCAL ONLY contest in 2017.
This year's local-only Contest is underway! The deadline is April 14, 2017!
