Winners of our 20th annual PBS KIDS Writers Contest!
Congratulations to all the kids who submitted stories to our 20th annual PBS KIDS Writers Contest! We had 140 creative entries from all over Vermont. The contest encourages kids in grades K-3 to create their own original stories and illustrations. Stories were judged locally by a panel of experts, with a winner and two honorable mentions from each grade level, for a total of 12 winners.
Our first place winners in each grade level are entered in the national contest! They were recognized at a May 2nd awards ceremony here at the Vermont PBS Studio. All contestants received a certificate of achievement, as well as an invitation to attend a Storytime Party, held at locations throughout the state.
Check videos below as the kids read their stories!
