“You can make anything by writing.” – C.S. Lewis
Few things spark a child's imagination like a good book, except perhaps the excitement of writing one themselves, and that's why PBS SoCal is looking for your child's original stories! This year, the 2016 PBS KIDS Writers Contest is a local-only contest, but is still designed to promote the advancement of children’s literacy skills through hands-on, active learning. PBS SoCal invites your child to join in the fun and submit a story to this year’s contest.
Local Contest Guidelines:
- The contest is open to kids in grades K-3.
- Each entry must be an original work written and illustrated by the student.
- Stories can be fact or fiction, prose or poetry and each grade level will be judged separately.
Every child who submits a story will receive a Certificate of Appreciation from PBS SoCal and first, second, and third place winners will also be chosen from each grade level to receive prizes. Best of all, your budding writer will have the chance to stretch their creative muscles and feel the pride of creating a story from their own imagination.
We can’t wait to read your stories. Ready? Set – Write!
Entry Date: January 25, 2016
Closing Date: April 8, 2016
