PBS Kids Writers Contest Welcomes Young Authors' Submissions

"When I am blushful I feel pink like a pig." That's a line from The Colors I Feel, one of the winning Vermont stories in last year's PBS Kids writers contest. Then-first grader Joshua Kafumbe of Middlebury wrote and illustrated the tale. Budding scribes in kindergarten through third grade who want to follow in Joshua's footsteps have until March 20 to enter this year's contest, which calls for entrants to produce a work of fact or fiction, prose or poetry, accompanied by at least five original, colorful illustrations. A panel of local judges will choose three winners from each grade level to be recognized at an awards ceremony at the Vermont PBS studio this spring. Visit the TV station's website to download an entry form, get writing tips and read more colorful winning stories.

PBS Kids Writers Contest: Open to kids in grades K-3. Entries must be received by Friday, March 20. Info, vermontpbs.org.
The original print version of this article was headlined "A Way With Words"
