GPB Education Announces The 2020 PBS KIDS Writers Contest Winners
GPB Education is thrilled to announce this year's PBS KIDS Writers Contest winners! These winners were among hundreds of K-3 students in Georgia who participated in the 2020 PBS KIDS Writers Contest. Students submitted original, illustrated stories for the chance to win great prizes and be featured on GPB's website.
A first, second, and third place winner was selected for each grade. Each grade level also had a STEAM winner--ones that best incorporated science, technology, engineering, arts, or mathematics.
While the awards ceremony is usually hosted at GPB's headquarters in Atlanta, a virtual ceremony was held on Saturday, June 27, due to ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19. During the virtual ceremony, winners and their families enjoyed a special story from storyteller Mama Koku, and celebrated each other during the awards presentation.
