The PBS Kids Go! Writers Contest kicked off last week. Kids in kindergarten, first, second or third grade can submit their original illustrated stories to their local public television station (check to find nearest partipating stations). The local station chooses winners and enters them into the national contest. An Independent Entry Form is available for those without a local station. Consider encouraging the kids in your life to enter and show off their creative storytelling skills.
Several young writers from Wisconsin won national awards last year! You can read and listen to books by the 2009 National Winners on the Writers Contest website.
