K – 5 El Paso And Las Cruces Kids Needed For PBS Writers Contest

Kindergarten teacher helping students with writing skills

El Paso’s PBS station, KCOS, is holding a writing contest for the kiddos. The PBS KIDS Writers Contest promotes the advancement of children’s literacy skills through hands-on, active learning. Kids in grades K – 5 are invited to take part in the contest that celebrates creativity and seeks to build literacy skills in kids as they write and illustrate their own stories.

Kids in K – 5 in El Paso and Las Cruces can submit a story. The deadline for submissions is April 7. Winners will be selected by KCOS and the UTEP Department of Teacher Education. Prizes include free books, gift certificates to kid-friendly businesses, and PBS Kids prizes. If more than five students from a classroom or community group submit entries, they will be entered into a raffle to win a classroom visit from Clifford the Big Red Dog.

There is a set of resources such as story ideas and activity sheets that parents and teachers can find at Teachers can also take advantage of a collection of online teacher resources to use in their classrooms.
