Every year PBS El Paso is a proud participant in the PBS KIDS annual Writers Contest because it underscores our commitment to the success of children in our community,” said Emily Martin Loya, Station Manager for PBS El Paso. “This year, the original deadline was slated for the end of March and COVID-19 impacted the way we usually work with schools and classrooms for entries.

More of our entries were direct from families who were balancing at-home, online school and adjusting to working from home and the stress of all these changes. Though we had fewer entries this year, the quality of entries was as high as ever. We want to applaud all the students (and their families) who made time to write and illustrate their creative stories at home."
