WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Thank you to all of the 619 children, kindergarten through grade three, who entered illustrated stories in MPTV’s Eighteenth Annual Writers Contest. Even if your story was not selected by our local MPTV judges, your work deserves to be acknowledged and appreciated. You are all winners in our eyes.

MPTV congratulates the twenty young authors whose work was selected by a panel of judges from the fields of art, education and media. Entries were judged on the basis of originality, creative expression, storytelling, and integration of text and illustration.
