We have VERY limited staff, and you will not have contact, but a staff person will acknowledge your drop off and your story will be added to the submissions.
The Address: 2501 W. Coliseum Blvd., Fort Wayne, IN 46805
*PBS Fort Wayne will be contacting winners and is exploring the opportunity of doing a virtual award ceremony to acknowledge the winning stories.
Already dropped off your story at a local entry point? Contact your local entry point via email (links to local entry points are below)
Arrangements will be made to receive your story.
The PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest is a contest designed to promote the advancement of children’s reading skills through hands-on, active learning. This contest encourages children in grades K-3 in communities across the PBS39 viewing Area to celebrate the power of creating stories and illustrations by submitting their own original pieces. It extends the powerful tradition and annual success begun by the 15-year national run of the “Reading Rainbow Young Writers and Illustrators Contest.”
The top stories from each location move on to the PBS Fort Wayne Regional level! After the Regional results are announced in May, the contest officially concludes with a ceremony for the winners and their families.
