Primavera Online School® and Arizona PBS would like to know your predictions about the school of the future! We would like to welcome students from kindergarten through fifth grade to participate in this year’s Arizona PBS Writing Contest sponsored by Primavera.
Help us imagine what the future of school might be like by writing and/or illustrating your fiction or nonfiction story and win cool prizes. Is school in the future still in a classroom, or in your bedroom, under the sea or on the moon? You decide! Use your imagination and create the future.
