Contest Results

PBS national winners have been selected! National 2010 Contest winning stories and a sampling of stories from participating stations are posted on the new Contest website pbskids.org/writerscontest/. Unfortunately, none of our local winners placed in the national contest. We’ll try again next year!

KLRU celebrated all our local winners on Saturday, May 15th at the Carver Public Library. Our winners read their stories to their family and friends, received prizes along with a certificate and snacked on refreshments. Congratulations winners!
