Students entering kindergarten, first, second and third grade are invited to participate in the KET Summer Story Contest, submitting an illustrated story by July 24 on the theme of “Meet the Helpers.”

First, second, and third-place winning stories will be selected at each grade level and winners will be awarded prizes. Family, friends, and community will have the opportunity to select a “Fan Favorite” from top-placing finalists at each grade level during an online voting period, open August 1-3.

To enter the contest, go to KET.org/summerstory. All entries must be submitted digitally by July 24, 2020.
