Last Friday night, our 15yo competed in a storytelling contest in our county and she was awarded the highest score. The judges praised her original story as well and said she was a talented writer…It has definitely encouraged her and I’m glad to see this come to fruition after all the writing she has done in the last few years. She goes on with a storytelling ambassadorship to the next storytelling contest in Madisonville, KY. There, she will compete with other storytellers from the state. This goes along nicely with the drama experience she has gained at the theater and it more than covers ‘public speaking’ for this year.
