VEGAS PBS KIDS WRITERS CONTEST PRESENTED BY JANICE ALLEN

VEGAS PBS KIDS Writers Contest Presented by Janice Allen

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 by local financial support from Janice Allen—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, March 26, 2021 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

Stories can also be mailed to jrussell@vegaspbs.org.

A panel of judges will select local winners in the spring of 2021. All local winners will receive a fantastic prize pack, including a hardcover version of their story, autographed books, and a custom backpack filled with additional reading and writing resources.
