PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest 2011
This year’s contest is now closed and is in the judging stage. Stay tuned, as the winners will be announced in a few weeks.
What is the PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest and who can enter? It’s a contest open to kids in the K-5 grade levels (in our viewing area) who want to write and illustrate their own stories. Kids can submit a story for judging and a chance to win First, Second or Third place. Winning entries will also be featured on our website. Plus, winners from each grade level will be invited to the studios of WCVE PBS for an awards ceremony honoring their achievements.Because the goal of the contest is to encourage, challenge and reward effort, every child who submits an original story will be recognized for their participation with a Certificate of Appreciation.
Elements for a story:
- a beginning, middle, and end
- a central event like a conflict or discovery
- characters who change or learn a lesson
- illustrations that help tell the tale
