In an age of omnipresent technology, the idea of writing and illustrating a story using pen and paper is a novel one. But kids in kindergarten through third grade are tasked with doing just that in the PBS Kids Writers contest. Designed to promote children's reading skills through hands-on, active learning, the contest encourages kids to submit original stories with five or more illustrations. Twelve winners — three from each grade — will be announced in April. They'll have their stories published online and take part in an awards ceremony at the Vermont PBS Studio in Colchester. They'll also be invited to a Storytime Party, where they can sign up to read their stories aloud to family and friends. The deadline to enter is Friday, March 18, so let those creative juices flow.
