KUED was one of 63 public television stations across the country that participated in this year’s contest.
“Congratulations to the winners and thank you to all of the children who sent their stories to KUED,” says KUED General Manager Michael Dunn. “We at KUED 7 were pleased to bring this opportunity to celebrate young writers in Utah. The many incredible entries we received during the KUED PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest demonstrates the impact of KUED 7 and PBS KIDS’ shared commitment to opening up worlds of words for all young children in our community and across the country.”
The PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest is produced annually by PBS KIDS and is a part of PBS KIDS Raising Readers, a national initiative that uses the power of public media to build the reading skills of children ages two to eight.
