Get those creative juices flowing! WTVP has great incentive to get kids in kindergarten through third grade writing! And teachers…be sure to enter our Classroom Sweepstakes for additional prizes.
Rev up those imaginations and show us what you’ve got! This writing contest is open to all kids in kindergarten, first, second and third grades. Entries can be prose or poetry, fiction or non-fiction, biographical or total invention and must be supported by original illustrations. Entries are due to WTVP by March 27 and local winners will be announced in April. All local winners will be treated to prizes and a party in the WTVP Studio and their stories will be featured on the station’s website. First Place local winners will be entered into the national contest where they will compete against entries from across North America for spectacular prizes—including the likes of tablet computers and e-readers—courtesy of national prizing sponsor, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and PBS.
Entry forms and complete rules with word counts and formatting instructions are available below. Or call Stacey at (309) 495-0594. Deadline to enter is March 27, 2015.
