Welcome to the Parents and Teachers page for the PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest. The Contest encourages children in grades K-3 from communities across the country to celebrate the power of creating stories and illustrations by submitting their own original work.
Each year participating PBS stations work with schools, public libraries and other literacy organizations to implement the Contest in their communities. Children are encouraged to write and illustrate stories and submit them to their local stations, which select winners and award prizes. To find out more about the contest in your community, contact your local station.
