The Kentucky Youth Storytelling Competition, a statewide effort by the Kentucky Storytelling Association (KSA) to develop, encourage and highlight the talent of young storytellers, is open to children ages 7-17.
Video entries of a solo storyteller or a tandem team telling a single story should be submitted on DVD or via an electronic link. Winners will receive a $100 cash prize, a one-year membership in the Kentucky Storytelling Association, admission passes to two storytelling festivals and the opportunity to tell their stories on stage at the Kentucky Storytelling Conference and other events.
The entry deadline is June 1. Visit KSA’s website for more information, including tips on telling and teaching storytelling.
