StoryPath is complete for 2021, but will return in 2022!
What was StoryPath?
From June 14th – July 2, stories written by local youth were displayed in store windows throughout Victoria, BC. A single page from every story was available to read in a different window. To read an entire story you had to visit several different places, just like a scavenger hunt!
So, why did we do this?
Story Studio is an award-winning charity that exists to empower young writers – and one way to do this is by celebrating their work!
Each year, StoryPath will showcase just a few of the amazing young writers who have participated in our programs. All of the stories were written by youth in programs we ran with our amazing community partners. In addition, this outdoor ‘scavenger hunt’ for stories promotes great things like literacy, outdoor physical activity, community involvement and parent engagement.
Did it cost anything to participate?
It was free, thanks to generous donors, store owners and the support of community organisations like the Greater Victoria Public Library, Victoria Literacy Connection and the Victoria Literacy Task Group.
I heard there was a contest – can I win something? Is it a race? I’m very competitive!
