Idaho’s 2017 PBS KIDS Writers Contest

It’s time for Idaho’s 2017 PBS KIDS Writers Contest!
Children in grades K-3 are asked to write and illustrate their own stories and enter them into a contest. Idaho Public Television selects three winners for every grade for each of three regions in Idaho.  Winners will win books, prizes and this year they can even get a $100 contribution to their IDeal - Idaho College Savings account, plus they will have their winning story posted on our website.  Every child who enters the contest gets their story back with a certificate printed with their name.  Plus, teachers no longer need to include an envelope and return postage! 
Entries are due March 31.
Please go to the Writers Contest webpage at to get application forms, rules and tips for teachers.  Your students will get a great learning experience and can read wonderful stories written by other Idaho children like them.  You can see last year’s winning stories at
