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 29, 2019. 

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.

New digital series answers students' questions about state government
GPB reporter Stephen Fowler is covering the legislative session and lawmaking process for the first time, and he needs your help learning the ins and outs of state government. Each week during the session, Stephen answers questions you may have about what goes on at the Georgia Capitol, like "Who's in charge of taxpayer money?" or "What's all the fuss surrounding Georgia's voting machines?" 
Stephen will answer one question a week during the legislative session, with a new video posted every Tuesday.
