PBS Kids Go! Writers Contest
Then they should enter the PBS Kids Go! Writers Contest, where they could win really cool prizes if their stories are forwarded on to the national level to compete.
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 pieces. Eligible children from the WXXI viewing area are encouraged to write and illustrate stories to the local WXXI contest, which will select winners and award prizes. Stories must be received by Friday April 20, 2012.
The story must be original work of the child and my be fact, fiction, prose, or poetry. Children who cannot write may dictate their story to be printed or typed, and invented spelling is acceptable. Non-English text must be translated on the same page and the translated text must adhere to the word count. For complete rules and to download an entry form, click here.
Children in grades K-3 from the WXXI viewing area are encouraged to write and illustrate stories to the local WXXI contest, which will select winners and award prizes. The first place winners from the local contests will then be entered into the national level of the Contest where a panel of judges will select the national winners. National winners will be announced and prizes, including items such as tablets, e-readers and MP3 players, which will be awarded during summer 2012. As in years past, winning entries in each of the Contest categories will be featured on the site, pbskids.org/writerscontest, and visitors to the Contest site will continue to have the opportunity to create “Story Mashups” with winning stories.
