The 2023 KET Young Writers Contest is open for submissions! The annual contest seeks to celebrate creativity through four categories of writing – Illustrated Story, Short Story, Poetry, and Graphic Novels. Submissions will be accepted until Friday, March 31, 2023. There is no set theme, allowing your PreK – 12th grade students to explore the depths of their own interests and creativity. Rules, scoring rubrics, entry forms, past winners and more are all available on the contest website.
