Gaylord Herald Times:
CMU Public Television is launching the "PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest," a national/local competition designed to promote the advancement of children's reading skills through hands-on, active learning. The local effort encourages children in grades kindergarten through third in the CMU Public Television coverage area to celebrate the power of creating stories and illustrations by submitting their own original works. The deadline for submission of entries is Monday, March 15. Applications and additional information are available at www.wcmu.org.
"WCMU has long been involved with early childhood literacy," said Linda Dielman, CMU Public Television programming/outreach manager. "PBS Kids programming is focused on school readiness skills to ensure each child's success. This contest is an extension of that effort that brings plenty of fun and excitement for the children and their families"... CMU Public TV launches kids writing contest (Tue, 2/16)
