What is The Hub Create a Story Contest?
The Hub Create a Story Contest is an elementary school (K-5) story writing contest. The contest invites teachers to organize groups of 2 – 4 students, have them choose one of four Hub TV shows as a platform for their story, share with them some show images and/or short videos, and let each group run with their imaginations. Using the tools they have learned in class about the writing process in conjunction with a few visual cues, groups are encouraged to work as a team to come up with an engaging, creative and a well written story.
