AETN and PBS KIDS are getting ready for the 2020 PBS KIDS Writers Contest,an initiative designed to promote the advancement of children’s literacy skills through hands-on, active learning. The contest encourages children in grades K-3 to celebrate creativity by submitting their own original stories and illustrations. Entries will be judged on originality, creative expression, storytelling and integration of text and illustrations.
Each Arkansas entrant will receive a participation certificate, and 12 winners – three from each grade – will receive an AETN prize pack. In addition, first place winners will receive one (1) PBS KIDS Playtime Pad, which comes preloaded with educational games, music and videos!
