Blackfoot kindergartner places in PBS writing contest
Winners for the 2012 Eastern Idaho Awards Ceremony were announced Saturday as part of the PBS Kids Go! Writers Contest.
Blackfoot's Hallie Miles earned second place in the kindergarten division. She won a certificate and a bag of goodies.
Hallie story, with original artwork, was entitled, “Rainbow Fairies.”
In Hallie’s story, there are seven rainbow fairies—red, yellow, orange, green, blue, indigo and violet.
“These fairies sing all the time, everywhere they go,” her story concludes.
The PBS writers contest is for kindergartners through third graders.
The work of the winner in each grade level will be submitted for the national contest.
Each entry was judged by a panel of four judges--Matt Maw, Susan Steele, Terry Armstrong and Jesica DeHart.
The winners each read their stories to an appreciative audience of family members.
