PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest

This contest is a terrific way to introduce new and emerging readers to the world of telling stories.  Open to children from Kingergarten to 3rd grade this national contest invites children and families to join PBS and a lifetime of learning and exploration.  Families and teachers can explore PBS resources and have fun with games and apps designed to guide children through the process of telling stories.  From January through March WTCI partners with community organizations to host literacy events, celebrations and workshops.

WTCI hosts this annual local contest and awards prizes to the top winners in each grade category.  A host of local celebrity judges, activities and refreshments make this evening fun for everyone! Our all-star panel of judges will be meeting soon!  Stay tuned for exciting news about this year's winners.


WTCI partners with the City of Chattanooga, the Chattanooga Public Library and community organizations to celebrate literacy and learning throughout the summer. WTCI hosts weekly adventures from June through August each Wednesday at 2 PM. Please email with questions or to schedule large groups.

Field Trips
Join us at WTCI for field trips, group workshops and school tours.  WTCI customizes explorations of PBS at our station for groups of students of all ages, from pre-school to seniors.  We tour the station, use the Media Lab and iPad stations, explore PBS LearningMedia resources and PBS KIDS apps.  Each camper uses science and art in games and actvities that introduce them to people and places in their region and beyond, opening doors that can brighten futures.
