From the National Center for Education Statistics, CRUNCH "provides a forum for student-created content; we invite you to challange yourselves, explore ideas in new ways and have fun doing so!" Submissions are accepted for features, Art Reviews, Tech Reviews, and Show-Off.
Writers up to age 17 are encouraged "to share their work and help each other improve their writing." Published works are categorized by age range and genre, and reader feedback is solicited about each piece. Categories include short stories, poetry, research papers, book reviews, television reviews and movie reviews.
"How does Write Me a Story work? Each week we challenge you to write a story with the character, prop and place we give you. You send it in, KidsCom Kids vote on their favorites and the work of two kids from eqach group ends up in stunningly Stupendous Stories every week." Votes are tallied in to divisions: 11 and under, and 12 and over.
ZOOM, a PBS television series and awesome Web site, goes beyond stories and poems and also wants your artwork, recipes, science experiments, media reviews, home movies, plays, brainteasers, jokes and craft ideas. Although just a portion of the work submitted gets published on the web site, some of it makes it to the television show.
