PBS Kids Writer's Contest

Smoky Hills PBS Writer's Contest

We encourage children throughout our viewing area to write and illustrate their own stories! Children from kindergarten through 3rd grade are invited to write and illustrate their own stories to submit in the PBS Kids Writers Contest. Stories will be judged, and the winners get a visit at their school or home from a representative of Smoky Hills PBS.
Entry DEADLINE: February 28, 2020

A special thanks to Sunflower Bank for their support of the PBS Kids Writers Contest this year!
