Medaille College Sponsors PBS Kids Writers Contest
Medaille College is ecstatic to sponsor this year's PBS Kids Writers Contest, hosted by WNED | WFBO. The annual contest aims to promote the advancement of children’s literacy skills through hands-on, active learning, empowering children grades K-3 to celebrate creativity while building literacy skills, all by writing and illustrating their very own stories.
“As an organization committed to education, we are delighted to sponsor the PBS Kids Writers Contest, which has been a tradition in this community for over 20 years,” said Dr. Kenneth M. Macur, president of Medaille College. “While our focus is normally on older students, we fully understand the importance of encouraging the creative spirit early on and look forward to participating in the contest.”
How the Contest Works
Children in Western New York can submit their entries to the WNED | WBFO PBS KIDS Writers Contest until April 14, 2017. WNED | WBFO will select local winners and award prizes in the spring of 2017. Additionally, local winners will be featured on wned.org.
Creative Writing Resources
The contest is supported by a robust set of resources for children, parents and teachers which can be found at wned.org. Story ideas and activity sheets available on the Contest website to inspire children during the brainstorming process.
