This educational campaign empowers kids to use their unique voices and build literacy skills by writing and illustrating their very own stories – and then entering the PBS KIDS Writers Contest. Each child’s participation is recognized with a certificate, and winning entries will have the chance to move on to the national competition. National winners will be recognized with a variety of prizes such as e-readers.
In addition to encouraging kids, the PBS KIDS Writers Contest helps families and teachers use creative writing as a literacy building skill. With the support of content and tools from PBS LearningMedia and PBS Parents, this contest will tap into the support of those who matter most in kids’ lives, parents and teachers, and help them encourage kids throughout our community to write, illustrate and enter.
