Kids tune in to Vermont Public Television to watch "Curious George," "Dinosaur Train" and "Sesame Street." But every year, the local PBS affiliate invites its young viewers to turn off the tube and create stories of their own for the PBS Kids Go! Writers Contest. This annual literary competion, which opened this year on January 7, accepts entries from budding authors and illustrators in grades K through 3. Contestants submit the text of their story, accompanied by at least five original illustrations. Judges from local community partners — including Ben & Jerry's, the Vermont Deparment of Libraries and Kids VT — choose a winner from each grade. Among last year's top titles: "Eddie the Possum With No Tail" and "Tiger Goes to the Moon." VPT is accepting this year's imaginative entries until March 22.
