PBS Kids Writers Contest 2020

PBS KIDS Writers Contest

The 2020 Writers Contest is Open!

Moms, Dads, Grandparents, and Teachers,

Do you know kids who love to write or tell stories, is a reading superstar, or a creative artist?

This is their chance to write and illustrate their very own creative short story and submit it to the 2020 PBS KIDS Writers Contest.

They will compete with kids in their grade level from across Pennsylvania to win cool prizes! We would love to see LOTS of entries from each grade level from across the WPSU viewing areas. Everyone who participates from WPSU’s coverage area will be recognized by WPSU for their participation with a certificate and PBS KIDS prize mailed to them in April; plus, the winners from each grade level will be recognized at the state level by WQED.

Eligible Grades

The PBS KIDS Writers Contest is open to all children currently enrolled in grades K through 5.

There will be first, second, and third prizes awarded at each grade level.
