PBS Kids: A Writing Contest!

I just learned about this opportunity, so the deadline is practically here, but I know lots of ACE kids who love to write and might have something they’d like to enter into the PBS KIDS Writers Contest!

WHRO invites Kindergarten through 5th grade students to create a great story, illustrate it and enter it in our PBS KIDS Writers Contest!  The 2017 Writers Contest is now open. Deadline for receipt of entries is Friday, March 24th at 5:00pm.

All students entering the contest will receive a special PBS KIDS Certificate.  A first place and honorable mention winner will be named in each grade level.  Winners and their families will be invited to a special reception and studio recording of the WHRO Young Storytellers awards program.  We appreciate your help getting students involved with this fun and creative contest!
