Few things capture a child's imagination like a good book. We would like to invite you to join WEIU as we encourage children here in the Charleston area to build critical literacy skills by creating their own stories and to taking part in the PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest.
The PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest is a national-local contest designed to promote the advancement of children's literacy skills through hands-on, active learning. It encourages children in grades K-3 across the country to celebrate the power of creating stories and illustrations by submitting their own original pieces.
We Have Our Winners!
Local winners have been selected and will move on to the national level of the competition; several creative entries were received from local children!
First-place winners will advance to the national contest and a panel of esteemed judges, including Lisa Henson, Jeff Kinney and R.L. Stine, will rank the top 12 finalists. National winners will be announced during the summer of 2013 and the winning stories will be featured online. National winners will receive prizes, including tablets, e-readers and MP3 players. Also, all participants will have the option to receive a print or digital version of Highlights magazine.
