It was at "The Kentucky State Fair" on the "Blue Ribbon Stage" that the kids from Kentucky stopped the milling State Fair crowd. The Louisville Courier Journal was there too and you would have thought that they were telling at the National Storytelling Festival. People were stopping to laugh and listen just outside the listening area and other exhibits, including Toyota's display had no business, while the tales were told.
Check out the article and photos, they even mentioned the National Youth Storytelling Showcase. I encourage you to approach your State Fair Organization and ask for a platform and a time to show off your state's young storytellers. Give me a call, number is on my page here on PS and I will tell you how I got it set up.
