Share A Story

Kids, get your stories ready! The annual WGTE Public Media Share a Story Contest will be January 1 - January 31, 2019! This year, we encourage you to write and illustrate a short story about one of your family's traditions. Traditions often revolve around the holidays or special occasions but they can also occur daily or weekly such as a nightly family walk, bedtime story or even a weekly family meal. Some traditions may even be humorous or unusual. Whatever your tradition, we want to hear your story! Download the entry form below and return it by January 31 to enter the contest. Full contest rules, regulations and entry instructions are available on the form. 

Share a Story is an annual contest sponsored by the Conda Family to inspire children’s imaginations and promote literacy by encouraging children to write and illustrate their own original stories. The contest is open to children ages four to 12 years old. The top three entries in each age category will be recognized at an awards celebration at WGTE in February. There will also be a prize awarded to the teacher who sends in the most entries. Each child who enters the contest will receive a certificate of recognition.
