It's time to sharpen those pencils! GPB invites Georgia students in kindergarten through third grade to create a great story, illustrate it, and enter it in our PBS KIDS Writers Contest.
Stories can be fact or fiction, poetry or prose, and will be judged on originality, creative expression, storytelling, and integration of illustrations. A first, second, and third place will be chosen from each grade level. Additionally, three stories will be selected for the STEAM Award if their story effectively incorporates science, technology, engineering, arts, and/or mathematics.
The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2018.
The contest is supported by a
robust set of resources
for children, families, and teachers, including activity sheets and checklists to inspire children during the brainstorming process. For more information, go to
