And the 2018 Winners are...

WTVP is pleased to announce our kindergarten through third grade winners and honorable mentions in our local PBS Kids Writers Contest. We hope you enjoy reading these excellent stories!

Local winners and their families were treated to a party in the WTVP Studio where the students received prizes including books, writing journals and a special t-shirt announcing them as winners. Every entrant received an official Certificate of Achievement.

WTVP congratulates all our entrants for their superb stories! Whether you enter with a class or on your own, be sure to watch next winter for another contest. We are looking forward to reading your story!
