Fun! Imagination! And such talent! It's the Writers Contest for children in Kindergarten - 3rd Grade.
There's nothing quite like reading a great story to travel to places up the street, around the globe, and even across the galaxy -- without ever leaving your chair. Reading ignites the imagination and sparks creative thinking. The PBS Kids Writers Contest is one way to capture those creative ideas that come from reading and imagining, shape the ideas into stories, and then share the stories with others.
With the news today from PBS Kids announcing the national winners of the 2015 Writers Contest, we thought it would be the perfect time to share the videos of stories by our local winners.
We invited our first place award recipients in each grade to come to the Rhode Island PBS studios to read the winning story.
You can read and share all of the first, second, third place winners here. Congratulations and thank you to all of our writers!
Look for an announcement about next year's local contest, coming early in 2016. The contest will run from January through March.
The Rhode Island PBS Kids Club in partnership with the Warwick Mall invite you and your children to enjoy an end-of-summer picture takin', fist-bumpin', friend-huggin', and high-fivin' Back-to-School Meet and Greet with WORD GIRL at the Warwick Mall.
Join the Rhode Island PBS Kids Club on August 20 from noon to 2. The event is free - and for this one, registration is not needed. Just bring the kids. Oh - and don't forget to bring your camera!
