Join ‘Kwentong Bata, Kwentistang Bata 2’

The children storytellers are back.

“Kwentong Bata, Kwentistang Bata,” the Lampara story-telling competition, is now on its second year.

Following on the success of last year’s competition, Lampara Publishing, one of the Philippines leading children’s books publishers and the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA), invite elementary school students to join this year.

There will be two categories: Category A – Grades 1-4 and Category B – Grades 5-7. Finals will be held at the Manila International Book Fair on September 15, 2013 at the SM Mall of Asia SMX .

Teachers and parents tell stories to impart lessons and traditions to children. Now, children not only listen, but also tell their own stories. Last year’s almost 200 participants prove that storytelling is alive and kicking among our youth, even in this age of cyberspace.

Contestants, parents and coaches can look forward to great bonding experiences as they not only compete for great prizes, but also join in creative workshops. Through the workshops, they can gain confidence and skills in performing and expressing themselves.

Big prizes await the top 3 winners this year. Registration forms are available at the PETA Theater Center in Quezon City and in all Precious Pages outlets. Deadline for registration is on August 17. Register now for a fun experience of bonding, creating and performing exciting and value-laden children’s stories!
