WSKG is pleased to offer you the PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest
The PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest is a contest designed to promote the advancement of children's reading skills through hands-on, active learning. The Contest encourages children in grades K-3 in communities across the country to celebrate the power of creating stories and illustrations by submitting their own original pieces. The Contest extends the powerful tradition and annual success of the 16-year national "Reading Rainbow Young Writers and Illustrators Contest."
