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.

What the Festival contributes:

Getting the word out …

Information is distributed through the school system, city and county recreation centers, book stores, businesses, museums, and libraries, including the inner-city and rural areas of the county. Each school is sent materials encouraging the media specialist and teachers to introduce their students to the art of storytelling and to encourage them to participate in the Festival. Manuals and videos made available to teachers and others include lesson plans to enable them to easily include the art of storytelling in the curriculum.

The Festival uses this site to spread the word about storytelling and to share information with people in Hillsborough County and around the world.
