PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest 2013

Contest Information

The PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest invites children in grades K-3 to create stories using their own words and pictures, and recognizes their efforts with certificates and prizes. Parents, teachers, and librarians are encouraged to help children participate in the Contest.

Children in kindergarten through third grade are encouraged to write and illustrate stories and submit them to KLRU TV, where we select our local winners and award prizes. KLRU 1st place winners are entered into the national level of the Contest where a renowned panel of judges select the national winners. Winners will be announced and national prizes will be awarded in summer 2013.

2013 National Contest Winners

KLRU had our first place winners sent off to the national contest in May. We heard back from the contest coordinator that two of the submitted stories, 1st grade, “My Wish” and 3rd grade, “The Nighttime Burglar” were chosen to be featured on the national Writers Contest website.
