Dear Colleagues,
 
Few things capture a child’s imagination like a good book. Here’s an
opportunity for you to encourage children to create their own stories.
KUED-Channel 7 is teaming up with the Emmy Award-winning series Reading
Rainbow to promote children’s love of literature and appetite for
learning. Hosted by actor LeVar Burton, Reading Rainbow introduces young
children to the joys of reading and the fun of learning.
 
To support this program and encourage children’s creative expression,
Reading Rainbow and KUED Channel 7 are presenting the 14th Annual Young
Writers & Illustrators Contest, a nationwide contest encouraging
children, Kindergarten through Third Grade, to write and illustrate
their own story. This Contest has proven tremendously successful —
nationally 45,000 youngsters enter original stories yearly and over 400
entered locally.
 
The local contest deadline is Friday, April 4th, 2008. Please submit
all entries: 
Attention: Poonam Kumar

101 South Wasatch Drive, Room 215
Salt Lake City, Utah 84112
 
To make this Contest a major success, we invite you to join in the fun.
Contest rules and entry forms are available at:

Because our goal is to encourage, challenge and reward effort, every
child will be recognized for their participation with a Certificate of
Achievement signed by LeVar! We hope you will join us in bringing the
love of reading and the joy of self-expression to children in our
community. Thank you in advance for your support.
 
Sincerely,
