Storytelling Competition in Argentine Sign Language. Second Edition

The videobooks represent an inexhaustible source of ideas to promote reading. This time, the idea was to invite all deaf children, youth and adults throughout in the country to participate in the second Storytelling Contest in Argentine Sign Languaje (LSA).

The announcement was made nationally and the competition was split into two categories: Storytelling and Reading. We found it interesting to include these categories to reinforce the idea that storytelling and reading are two different processes that require different strategies. Each of these categories was also divided by age: up to 14 years and from 15 years.

To design, spread and develop the idea Canales called three deaf people who have experience in editing videos and developing stories. Two of them come from deaf families, two have participated as readers in videobooks and one has participated in the first contest of stories we did in 2007.

We received 154 stories that were sent by deaf adults, children and adolescents from 20 different schools spread in seven provinces of our country.

The eight winners have been honored at the awards ceremony that was held at the Argentine National Congress. Over 250 deaf children from across the country participated from that Ceremony. We invite you to meet the winners through the pictures we took during the event. More pictures can be seen at http://goo.gl/d5bXF

The second part of this initiative will be editing the eight winning stories on a DVD that will be distributed in the schools.
