storytelling contest: Intergeneration Foundation
- Intergeneration Foundation Announces
2nd Storytelling Contest
The Intergeneration Foundation seeks to reinforce and recognize the power of
storytelling as a way to connect generations. Storytelling is an ancient
tradition of every culture to inform, entertain, educate and bring people
together. We invite people of all ages to tell us a story: a narrative of their family
’s history or traditions or a story from their imagination. Whether fiction
or non-fiction, the story should illustrate intergeneration needs, connections
and understanding, and feature characters from at least two generations. One
illustration, such as an original photo, drawing, painting, or cartoon may be
included to enhance the story’s message.
Ideas to inspire and motivate you might be…
--Favorite family stories handed down from generation to generation
--Stories you might tell your child or grandchild....stories a child might
share with his/her grandparent.
--Stories about intergeneration care giving and sharing
--Create a story from your imagination that lifts up generations
