The first-place stories have advanced on to the national competition where they are competing against winners from other PBS stations across the country for fabulous prizes including tablet computers and e-readers. National winners will be announced this summer.
Local winners and their families were treated to a party in the WTVP Studio where they received prizes including books, writing journals and a special t-shirt announcing them as a writing super hero. Every entrant received an official Certificate of Achievement.
WTVP congratulates all our entrants for their superb stories. And whether you enter with a class or on your own, be sure to watch next winter for another contest. We’re looking forward to reading your story!
