Winners from Previous Years

We are pleased to announce the 2017 Winners of the KUED Kids Writers and Illustrators Contest in partnership with the Natural History Museum of Utah. You can read stories from each winner and watch videos of the first place winners in each grade as they read their stories aloud.

Through the Writers and Illustrators Contest, KUED Kids encourages creativity, self-confidence, and imagination in children throughout the state of Utah. Winners from around the state celebrated their successes at the Natural History Museum of Utah with an awards breakfast and a day exploring the museum. KUED celebrates the talented Utah children who entered this year’s KUED contest. Please enjoy the stories of the 2017 KUED Kids Writers and Illustrators Contest.
