The KET Young Writers Contest is an opportunity for young children to express their creativity by writing for an authentic audience beyond the walls of their school or home.

Students in kindergarten through the  grade 5 are invited to send in their illustrated stories and, for the first time, students in grades 3-5can instead choose to enter a 400-600 word short story without illustrations.

The contest runs until April 15, and winners will be notified in May. Visit the Young Writers Contest website, which has links to the rules, scoring rubrics and entry forms.
