Event Description

Bring your own 1 minute tale of high school glory or infamy to tell between contestants.

Mass Cultural Council awarded StoriesLive® five STARS Residency grants for the 2014 Fiscal Year, which allowed this storytelling program for high school students to continue for its fourth consecutive year. These grants have been the program’s most substantial educational funding this past year; the MCC arough local cultural councils have provided a backbone of support for the StoriesLive® program since its parent program, massmouth,inc., incorporated as a 501c3 in 2010.

In the last three and a half years, nearly 6,000 students have taken part in the StoriesLive® program and learned to tell their personal story. Over the course of our week-long program, we teach students to craft and share personal stories on themes such as “First Time,” “Up the Family Tree,” “Where I am From,” “Lost & Found,” and “Learned the Hard Way.” A majority of all of the participating schools are categorized as Title 1 schools.

Over $17,000 in scholarship prizes have been awarded to students who win the yearly StoriesLive® regional story slam. This year, that final slam will take place on April 27th at the Boston Public Library from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM. It’s a free event that will feature stories performed by high school students from Boston Latin Academy, Lynn Classical High School, South Community High School, Worcester, Revere High School, Chelsea High School, Watertown High School, Newburyport High School, and Cambridge Ringe and Latin School. Bring your own 1 minute tale of high school glory or infamy to tell between contestants.
