Congratulations, Mabel Wise, national PBS KIDS Writers Contest finalist!

Posted on 05 Aug 2014

We’re thrilled to announce that Mabel Wise, AETN KIDS Writers Contest third grade winner, has been chosen as a national finalist in the PBS KIDS Writers Contest. Mabel, who attends Eastside Elementary School in Rogers, Arkansas, competed against other state winners from across the country. 

Mabel’s story, “Cloudy and the Busy Street,” was judged on originality, creative expression, storytelling, and integration of text and illustrations. Based on its merits, “Cloudy and the Busy Street” was selected as a national finalist and — along with the national third grade first, second and third place winners and other national finalists — is now featured on the national contest website!

Be sure to check out Mabel’s entry here, and, while you’re on the PBS KIDS Writers Contest site, read a few more of the winning entries to inspire kids in your home for next year’s contest!

The AETN PBS KIDS Writers Contest is designed to promote improved children’s reading skills through hands-on, active learning — and we can’t wait to read even more fantastic young Arkansas writers’ stories. You can learn more about the Arkansas level contest, as well as this year’s state winners, at aetn.org/writerscontest.
