PBS KIDS Writers Contest

2014 Rules and Entry Forms

The PBS KIDS Writers Contest is a yearly competition in which children in grades K-5 in southern Nevada may celebrate the power of creating stories and illustrations by submitting their own original work. 

Illustrations are required, and a word count limit (by grade level) is strictly enforced. Entries in braille and languages other than English are accepted, but must be accompanied by an English translation.

Vegas PBS is proud to offer the local competition to all students in Kindergarten through 5th grade; however, only first place winners from Kindergarten through 3rd grades will be forwarded for judging in a national competition. 

The 2014 contest is now closed.  Check back soon to read local winners' stories!


Southern Nevada Writing ProjectVegas PBS has partnered with the Southern Nevada Writing Project to award each first place winner free tuition in the organization's annual summer writing camp
