Announcing the 2021 KET Young Writers Contest!

It’s been said that writers create people and places that didn’t exist before, and that’s like magic. Well, KET Education is calling all magicians – word wizards and drawing sorcerers – to wave your wands and share your magic with us!

We invite students in Kindergarten through fifth grade to submit illustrated stories, students in fourth through twelfth grades to submit short stories, and students in fourth through twelfth grades to submit poetry. Winners are selected and prizes awarded.

The contest opens December 1, 2020 with the deadline to enter April 15, 2021.

You can hear the authors read winning pieces from previous contests, explore resources and tips,  see the official rules, reference the scoring rubrics and submit your entry via the form below!
