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

The deadline for submissions is March 20, 2020. 

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, four stories (one from each grade level) will be selected for the STEAM Award if their story effectively incorporates science, technology, engineering, arts, and/or mathematics. 

GPB Education's Mobile VR Lab Initiative is bringing virtual reality instruction to classrooms across Georgia! It allows students to engage with events, places, ideas, and people in an immersive format that brings the content to life.
