The KET Young Writers Contest gives students in grades K-8 the opportunity to ignite their imaginations through creative writing. The contest is designed to promote the advancement of children’s literacy skills through hands-on, active learning and empowers children to celebrate creativity and build literacy skills by writing their own stories.

There are three competitions: illustrated story contests for grades K-1 and 2-3, a short story contest for grades 4-5 and a poetry contest for grades 6-8. Winners will be selected and prizes will be awarded at each grade level.

The deadline for all competitions is March 30. Visit KET’s website for more information and links to contest rules and an entry form.
