We are pleased to announce our 2020 winners and would like to congratulate them on their accomplishments.
The PBS KIDS Utah Writers & Illustrators Contest celebrates its 19th year with the theme “Explore the Outdoors.” The contest strives to foster creativity and literacy in young Utah artists and writers. Children were encouraged to find inspiration for their story by exploring the natural world, from backyard birdfeeders, to nature walks, to hiking and camping with their families. Stories are fact or fiction, poetry or prose and all of them celebrate exploring the natural world.
Every year PBS KIDS Utah is a proud host of the annual Writers & Illustrators Contest as it underscores commitment to the success of Utah children. The process of creative writing has been proven to improve a child’s academic skills as well as self-confidence, creativity, and imagination. PBS Utah celebrates all of the talented Utah children who entered this year’s PBS Utah contest.
