2022 PBS KIDS Writers Contest is Now OPEN!

Calling all aspiring writers! The annual PBS KIDS Writers Contest is officially open, so if you like to share stories and create illustrations, this is the perfect opportunity for you! You could even win a Kindle Fire or some fun PBS memorabilia!

The contest is open to students in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades who live anywhere in the WPBS service region of Northern New York and Eastern Ontario. Entries can be submitted by  mail or online. Submissions will be accepted through March 31, 2022.

Authors will be judged on their stories’ creativity, originality, and development, and there are prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Most exciting is that the winner from each grade level will be featured on-air reading their stories!

Winners will be announced on May 2nd and their entries will be celebrated on WPBS during the months of May and June!
