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.

All local winners were recognized at an awards ceremony at Vegas PBS where they received trophies, a hardcover version of their story, autographed books, and a custom backpack filled with additional reading and writing resources.


Check back in December 2019 for rules and entry forms for our 20th annual competition!
