PBS KIDS Writers Contest

PBS KIDS Writers Contest

The Vegas PBS KIDS Writers Contest is designed to promote the advancement of children’s literacy skills through hands-on, active learning. The contest— made possible in part by local financial support from Janice Allen and Karma Las Vegas Powered By: Towbin Motorcars —empowers children in grades K-5 to celebrate creativity and build literacy skills by writing and illustrating their very own stories.

How the Contest Works
Children in Southern Nevada can now submit their entries to the Vegas PBS KIDS Writers Contest by Friday, April 12, 2019 at 5 p.m. All entries must be accompanied by an official entry form signed by a parent/guardian.

Stories can be mailed or hand delivered to Vegas PBS at:

3050 E. Flamingo Road
Las Vegas, NV 89121


A panel of judges will select local winners in the spring of 2019. All local winners will be recognized at an awards ceremony at Vegas PBS where they will receive trophies, a hardcover version of their story, autographed books, and a custom backpack filled with additional reading and writing resources.
