The PBS KIDS Writers Contest is the largest annual writing competition of its kind for children in kindergarten through fifth grade.  In addition to providing an outlet for Southern Nevada children to explore their imagination and express their creativity, the PBS KIDS Writers Contest helps families and teachers use creative writing as a literacy building skill.

During the 2017 competition, Vegas PBS received a record-breaking 1,352 entries!  Grade levels were judged separately by a panel of qualified professionals, based on originality, creative expression, storytelling technique, illustrations, and overall impression.  The top three winners in each grade level were honored at an awards ceremony at Vegas PBS on Monday, May 8, 2017. Dinner was provided, courtesy of La Bonita Supermarket.
