Youth storytellers have been a significant part of the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival since its third year. The children and teens that perform each year represent thousands of children who participate in school-based storytelling festivals across the state and nation.

 This year, 2018 we have combined the local youth storytelling program and the National Youth Storytelling Showcase into one program. All interested storytellers ages 5-18 from throughout the nation were invited to audition and participate in the Festival as a “National Youth Storyteller.” Auditions were held in March and notifications will be sent by the first Monday in May, to all applicants informing them if they were chosen to perform at the 2018 Timpanogos Storytelling Festival.  Selected storytellers will also receive the opportunity to have additional training and coaching before their festival performance.

Storytelling is a valuable part of our community and is being nurtured in the next generation by teachers, parents, and others who understand the power of story. Our nation’s youth shine in their ability to capture our hearts, tickle our funny bones, and paint pictures in our minds with their stories. Join them at the 2018 Timpanogos Storytelling Festival, September 6–8, 2018.

In 2018 we combined the local youth storytelling program and the National Youth Storytelling Showcase into one program. Now any interested storyteller ages 5-18 from throughout the nation are invited to audition and participate in the Festival as a “National Youth Storyteller.”

The application requires a video recording of their story as their audition. Applications need to be filled out by Monday, March 11, 2019 and your video recording will be sent through two rounds of judging for review. Selected tellers will present one 3-9 minute story on stage at the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival.

 In order to help as many students have an opportunity to participate as possible, students that perform at the Festival for three years in a row are asked to take a break for one year before auditioning again.
