Primavera Online School® and Arizona PBS would like to welcome students from kindergarten through fifth grade to participate in this year’s writing contest sponsored by Primavera. The theme this year ties into Teacher Appreciation Week, which was May 6 to 10, 2024.

Help us imagine The Ultimate Field Trip you would take with your favorite teacher. What would you see and what you do in the jungle so green or the ocean so blue? Sail down the river in a canoe or race in a spaceship up to the moon? You decide!

To enter, write and/or illustrate a story about The Ultimate Field Trip with your favorite teacher. Stories can be fact or fiction and should be submitted by Sunday, May 26, 2024.

Kindergarten and first grade students should submit stories with a minimum of 50 words and a maximum of 200 words.

Second through fifth grade students should submit stories with a minimum of 100 words and a maximum of 350 words.

We’re accepting one entry per child, but an educator, parent, or legal guardian can submit multiple individual entries on behalf of multiple children, and each entry must have only one author. Please be sure to include the entrant’s full name and story title in the file name when it is submitted.

Illustrations are not required, but we want every student to have fun! So feel free to add illustrations, drawings, 3D artwork or other art if you like.

Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place for each grade level. The prizes will be:

  • First place: Amazon Fire Tablet
  • Second place: VR Headset
  • Third place: 3D drawing pen

All the winners will be invited to a special celebration at Arizona PBS after the judging concludes. And each winner’s work will be featured here on our website!

Review the official rules or visit the FAQs page if there are any questions, then submit your entry below.
