The 2020 PBS KIDS Writers Contest is now closed for submissions.
GPB's PBS KIDS Writers Contest encourages Georgia kids in kindergarten through 3rd grade to submit original, illustrated stories for great prizes and a chance to be featured on the GPB website.
Your story could win the STEAM Award! If your story incorporates science, technology, engineering, arts or math, it is eligible to win.
The contest is made possible with support from Jane Hiatt at the Hiatt Fund, Community Foundation of Mississippi.
Please note that dates for the contest have changed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Since our offices are closed, there will be a delay in judging and the announcement of winners. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
