The PBS KIDS Writers Contest is designed to promote the advancement of children’s literacy skills through hands-on, active learning. The contest empowers children in grades K-3 to celebrate creativity and build literacy skills by writing and illustrating their very own stories.
WPT celebrated all the winners at a ceremony 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 14 at the Sun Prairie Public Library. Winners presented and read their stories at the ceremony, which also featured a presentation by author Kathe Crowley Conn.
Children and their caregivers can find stories written by children from throughout the country at pbskids.org/writerscontest. The website also has a story creation tool for children and resources for parents and teachers.
