A Unique Storytelling Contest

Here in Singapore, most people usually think of storytelling contests as something catering to kids. Not this one. The Northwest CDC is organizing a storytelling contest for seniors. If you are over 55, you can join the competition, and the winners will later join the national contest, organized by the National Library Board in November 2008.

Stories can be told in English, Mandarin, Tamil, or Malay. It will be lots of fun, whether telling a story or listening to the tales told. The registration deadline is July 31. You can download the form from the Northwest CDC website.

I really liked the idea when I heard it too, silken. When I first moved to Singapore, my work led me to an opportunity to hear a number of senior citizens telling their stories. Some of them were really very interesting. I've posted a few of them here, and one was published in an online magazine many years ago.
