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.
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 1, 2020!
How the Contest Works
