Great American Storyteller Winners

September 26, 2018

Finalists who competed at the 3rd annual Great American Storyteller contest last weekend at Calvary Lutheran Church were (from left) Rose van der Berg, Colleen Shaskin, Sue Searing, Tina Rohde and Paulette Friday. 
The audience chose Searing as the $1,000 winner. In the first round she entertained with a charming story about why she decided to retire in Minnesota and she nailed the prompt in the second round with a surprising twist on the description she was given. 
This activity was funded, in part, with a grant from the Region 2 Arts Council funded by an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund.
