This contest is designed to promote the advancement of children’s reading skills through hands on, active learning. It encourages children to celebrate the power of creating stories and illustrations by submitting their own original pieces. Last year over 300 students submitted their work to WVIA for this contest. The first place student in each grade category will receive a plaque and have their story narrated by FM Host, Lisa Mazzarella for a web feature.
