Ready To Learn is very pleased to announce that your Community Idea Stations have a local national winner in the PBS KIDS Writers Contest! Michelle K. won Second Place at the Second Grade Level for her story “Rosy Helps Cathy Catch Her Bus.” This is quite an accomplishment, considering the thousands of entries that were submitted from all over the USA. The official PBS press release can be read here.
You can hear Michelle read her story and see her illustrations in this video:

Our kindergarten first place winner, Kara F., was also a national finalist. Her story is featured on the national website along with Michelle's. Both stories can be found at pbskids.org/writerscontest/read-stories. Look under “Stations: WCVE.”
We hope your child will consider entering the 2015 contest. Information will be available on our Ready To Learn webpage at the beginning of the new year.
