The top storytellers from each elementary school in the Fulton City School District were honored last week at a district-wide storytelling festival at the Fulton Education Center.

Participants shared folklores, fairytales, legends, and fables that ranged from spooky to downright hysterical and many even included a useful moral lesson that provided a bit of advice to audience members.

The festival was the culmination of a storytelling event that began in each elementary school in late March.

Students in grades three through six competed for the honor to represent their school by progressing from classroom-level competitions to grade-level competitions to a building-level competition and then finally the opportunity to represent their school and tell their stories at the district festival in front of a large audience.

The goals of the storytelling program are to increase self-esteem, develop poise and confidence in public speaking, enhance listening and memorization skills, strengthen language development and heighten the students’ appreciation of literature.
