Find out more about the different contests and find inspiration right here to join in the fun and enter to win great prizes from PBS Reno Kids Club and our community partners.



Entries accepted from May 31 to June 11, 2021:

Honoring family traditions and each family's unique culture is important! But, also remember that you and your family can make new traditions at any time! A family tradition is a pattern of behavior that reflects and reinforces a family’s values, attitudes, or beliefs. Traditions can be daily, weekly, monthly, or reserved for special days of the year. This contest celebrates family traditions. Tell us about your nightly story time, a secret family handshake, your pizza and a movie night, your holiday traditions, or favorite family recipes. 

Explore some more ideas about ways to celebrate your family traditions with the PBS Reno Camp Curiosity collection of PBS KIDS activities below and start creating your entry.

Contest entries can be submitted as videos, photos, stories or illustrations. Kids and their families are encouraged to be creative with how to capture and show your family traditions for the contest!

The Prize:

The winning entry will receive a FREE Alumni Family Summer Camp package for a family of five at Camp Fleischmann from the Boy Scouts of America: Nevada Area Council. Dates for the camp package is July 4-7, 2021.
