Children in kindergarten through third grade are invited to submit their originally written and illustrated stories in the PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest.
The local contest, sponsored by the Educational Communications Board and Wisconsin Public Television (WPT), gives youngsters an opportunity to expand their creative skills in the areas of storytelling, writing and drawing.
Prizes are awarded in each grade level for achievement in writing and illustration, and all local first-place winners will be sent to the national competition. Every child who submits a story for judging will receive a certificate of participation.
Local winners will be honored at an awards ceremony Saturday, May 5 at the Sun Prairie Public Library. Winners will be notified two weeks before the awards ceremony.
Entries are due by Friday, March 23, 2012.
