And the 2017 Winners Are...

WTVP is pleased to announce our kindergarten through third grade winners and honorable mentions in our local PBS Kids Writers Contest.

These delightful, imaginative plotlines are from just a few of the winning stories from WTVP-Public Media’s 2017 PBS KIDS Writers Contest. Click on the book cover to read each story and then turn the pages by clicking the bottom right corner.

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!
