Yorkton Story Slam went virtual this year, to ensure everyone's health and safety.
Five entries were received, each recorded by the story teller. The judges listened to each, and will announce the winner on Oct. 29.
In the meantime, each of their stories can be heard below. Listen, and then check back at the end of the month to see if you agree with the judges' decision! With the pictures of the storytellers below you can also see which story is theirs.
