Time to get out your pencils and paper! The KET Young Writers Contest is looking for stories.

Instructions, contest rules, and many of last year's winners are available online now!
KET School Video Project
The KET School Video Project — Digital Citizenship runs now through May 2. This project focuses on school and community efforts to help students be good, respectful digital citizens, make and share multimedia projects, participate in social networking, and develop critical media awareness.
Student videos can be brief projects like PSAs, news stories, recorded discussions or debates, and more. Kentucky schools who upload a video to us by May 2 will automatically be entered in a prize drawing for a greenscreen and light kit for making more great projects! Visit the project's website for more details.
