Update: PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest Winners to be Announced Soon
The 2012 PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest has now ended. Judging has also been completed and the winners for each of the grade levels will be announced soon.
The contest was open to kids in grades K-3. Each entry consisted of an original work – written and illustrated by the entrant. The stories could be fact or fiction, prose or poetry. Each grade level was judged separately.

- a beginning, middle, and end
- a central event like a conflict or discovery
- characters who change or learn a lesson
- illustrations that help tell the tale
