If you are in Kindergarten, First, Second or Third Grade, send us your illustrated story! 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.
Every young author will receive recognition. Children who enter through WQPT will receive a special certificate, along with their returned stories. Sixteen winners (four from each grade) from the eastern Iowa and western Illinois region will be awarded prizes at a local celebration in May, as well as have an option to appear on-air in a group promotion for PBS Kids programming.
Finalists and participating classrooms will also receive free books. In addition, all participants will have the option to receive special offers from Leap Frog® Leap Reader® and Highlights magazine for children.
