I heard there was a contest – can I win something? Is it a race?
There’s no race – but there are prizes! Thanks to the generous businesses that support us, we are holding a random prize draw for anyone who participates in the StoryPath. To enter, walk and read at least one story on the StoryPath and complete the form below by midnight on June 24th.
What is the StoryPath?
From June 12 – 24, stories written by local youth will be displayed in store windows throughout Victoria, BC. A single page from every story is available to read in a different window. To read an entire story, you have to visit several different places, just like a scavenger hunt! It’s all free, to both the public and the businesses who showcase the story posters.
How can I follow the StoryPath?
Look in store windows for posters with the Story Path logo. Over a dozen stories are scattered in windows around downtown Victoria, with each page of the story on a different poster – and each poster indicates where the next page of a story will be found. And look at the map below to see all the locations!
Does it cost anything to participate?
It’s all 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 am a business – how can you help?
We’re currently looking for business partners who will provide windows/storefronts where between one and four 11×17 StoryPath story posters can be displayed, visible from the street. We’re also looking for donations of prizes for participants in the StoryPath. Email us if you’re interested.
