WQED EXTENDS THE EQT CORPORATION PRESENTS:
PBS KIDS GO! YOUNG WRITERS CONTEST DEADLINE
PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania—Due to inclement weather in February, multiple school closings and at the request of area teachers, WQED has decided to extend the deadline for the EQT Corporation Presents: PBS KIDS GO! ® Young Writers Contest. Entries will now be accepted in the Pittsburgh market until Thursday, April 15, 2010. Presented by EQT Corporation for the 2nd year in a row, the contest is open to children in grades K-3. Last year’s contest generated over 1,200 entries.
Contest entry forms and full contest details are available at: http://www.wqed.org/education/writers_contest/index.php
The PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest is produced by WNED-TV, Buffalo/Toronto and PBS, and is part of PBS KIDS Raising Readers, a national initiative which uses the power of public media to build the reading skills of children ages 2-to-8, with an emphasis on children from low-income families. The effort is funded by a Ready To Learn grant from the U.S. Department of Education, part of a cooperative agreement with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), PBS and The Ready To Learn Partnership.
