Spotlight your festival-quality storytellers!

Spotlight your festival-quality storytellers!

Let your Festival Quality Storytellers know you are proud of them and give them opportunities to continue to polish their stories before they appear at the Festival. A few suggestions (we’re sure you can think of more):

  • Feature them telling their stories on your school’s morning show.
  • List their names on the marquee outside the school.
  • List their names in the school or PTA newsletter (and make sure you include information on the Festival so everyone can be there to cheer them on!).
  • Let students tell their stories to other classes.
  • Take a group to tell at a preschool or nursing home.
  • Feature them in a school mini-festival.
