Grandparent's Tales gives kids the opportunity to hear and re-tell the rich stories of older adults in their lives. Children transcribe stories told to them by a grandparent or other older adult, often complete with an original illustration. Every child who submits a story will receive a certificate to celebrate their participation. Selected stories will be re-published in a newspaper, read on television or a public Grandparent's Tales event, or published on our website. If you are an educator who is interested in participating in the program, please contact Barbara Johnson at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Grandparent's Tales is open to all children aged 6-12 from any school; please read guidelines and entry form.
