Open to children in grades K-3, the contest is designed to promote the advancement of children’s literacy skills through hands-on, active learning.
Each Arkansas entrant will receive a participation certificate, and 12 winners – three from each grade – will receive an AETN prize pack. In addition, first-place winners will win a PBS KIDS Playtime Pad, which comes preloaded with educational games, videos and music!
We would LOVE to see someone from the West Memphis area enter the contest. Rules, resources and entry form can be found at http://www.aetn.org/kids/writerscontest.
