Thank you to all who entered the KET Summer Story Contest!
With a theme of Meet the Helpers, the inaugural KET Summer Story Contest sought to celebrate the everyday helpers and heroes who answered the call during the current pandemic.
Children in Kindergarten through third grades were invited to submit stories describing selfless acts from the helpers they witnessed in their communities. KET Education is proud to announce six winners from across the Commonwealth.
