Calling all budding authors Kindergarten through Grade 5. Time to write and illustrate an original story and enter it into the WVPB Annual Writers Contest. Winners at each grade level will have their stories published on our web-site and win great prizes. Prizes are awarded to the first 3 places at each grade level.
Elliot Jackson won first place among 4th graders in West Virginia Public Broadcasting’s 2019 Writers Contest with his story 'Don't Judge a Sock by Its Color'. He came to our studios to record a version for radio weeks later.
Upon hearing Elliot's story, WVPB video producer Pat Sergent wondered what it would be like to add animation to Elliot's drawings. We think this venture turned out great, especially paired with Elliot's narration.
