WQPT invited children in kindergarten, first, second or third grades to enter the annual PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest. Young authors from around the country send stories to their local PBS station, like WQPT–Quad Cities PBS, to compete for local and national prizes. It's fun, hands-on learning that's become a tradition in families and classrooms across the nation.
