Many thanks to all who participated in the 2014 Rhode Island PBS Kids Health Living Writers Contest! Special thanks to the sponsors Corner Bakery Cafe, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Rhode Island, and CVS | Caremark who made all the fun and learning possible!
From Farmer Jack's tractor to rebellious fruits, to talking carrots and magic portals, the message about nutritious eating and healthy living came through loud and clear - and creatively - in the winning stories in the Rhode Island PBS Kids Club Writers Contest. The purpose of the annual national contest is to promote reading and imaginative writing and illustration among children in Kindergarten through third grade.
More than 70 young authors in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts submitted stories with a healthy living theme to this, our first Rhode Island PBS Kids Writers Contest. Of the qualified entries, up to four winners (first, second, and third places, plus an honorable mention) were chosen per grade to receive special recognition and prizes during a ceremony at Rhode Island PBS studios on April 16. All participants received a certificate. Click here to read more about the 2014 contest.
