The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Reno has organized a writer’s contest for students to write their thoughts in stories and illustrations. It is a local contest designed to encourage children from kindergarten to grade 3 to write their own imaginary and creative thoughts. This year’s theme is ‘INVESTIGATE.’ Every year, thousands of students from Northern Nevada participate in this contest.
Children who will participate in this contest will get a chance to celebrate their stories and artwork at Reno-Tahoe International Airport during the summers. They will also get a hard copy of their story, which will also be displayed on television and the PBS Reno website. This will help students to get used-to learning and writing their thoughts creatively and be more imaginative.
The PBO Reno curiosity classroom was established on April 19, 2022. The purpose of this classroom is to enhance, improve, motivate, cheer, and bring joy into our community while sharing creative ideas, exploring the beauties of our world, and the happiness of learning.
