LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Vegas PBS is now accepting submissions for the Vegas PBS Kids Writers Contest presented by Janice Allen.

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 by local financial support from Janice Allen—empowers children in grades K-5 to celebrate creativity and build literacy skills by writing and illustrating their very own stories.

Children in Southern Nevada can now submit their entries to the VEGAS PBS KIDS Writers Contest by March 26 at 5 p.m.

All entries must be accompanied by an official entry form signed by a parent/guardian.

Stories can be mailed to Vegas PBS at:

3050 E. Flamingo RoadLas Vegas, NV 89121

Entries may also be emailed to jrussell@vegaspbs.org.

A panel of judges will select local winners in the spring of 2021. All local winners will be recognized by Vegas PBS and will receive trophies, a hardcover version of their story, autographed books, and a custom backpack filled with additional reading and writing resources.
