***Note: If you are unable to go to Utah as a Georgia Youth Storyteller Finalist, PLEASE read on for the Georgia Youth Storytelling Showcase program and are between the ages of 5 and 18……..

Come, Participate, Tell Your Story. The top scoring Georgia Youth storytellers from both events will be invited to be featured storytellers at:

  1. Southern Order of Storytellers’ Youth Tellabration at Emerging Voices held annually at Collanwolde Fine Arts Center in Decatur, GA. The date and time are: Friday, November 9, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.
  2. The 30th Annual Southern Order of Storytellers Festival. The date and time are: on Saturday, January 26, 2013 at selected times during that day.

This is a great chance for young storytellers to perform in front of a live audience, storytelling judges, receive an evaluation and have their stories recorded. (No charge.)

Stories need to be 8-12 minutes, and can be folk tales or original material, but any copyrighted material must have written permission.

While the youth are telling their stories, they will be videotaped. Brief entry forms may be filled out at the event. The video tape will be sent to Ms. Jane Sullivan and her committee for evaluation. Youth will be notified of their evaluation for further performances by October 22, 2012. The dvd and evaluation will be sent to each participant.
