Disney Consumer Products is searching for the Winnie the Pooh Storyteller of the Year. The Walt Disney Company wants to celebrate parents and guardians who foster their child’s creativity and teach valuable life lessons through storytelling. The “Storyteller of the Year” contest focuses on parents’ love of Winnie the Pooh. The contest invites parents to share the loveable bear’s story in a creative way through video and the use of fun props including Pooh plush toys, puppets, blankets or any other Pooh item.
“We invite parents to join Disney in celebrating the art of storytelling and Winnie the Pooh, one of our most beloved characters of all time,” said Stephen Teglas, vice president of classic franchises for Disney Consumer Products. “Pooh teaches us about friendship, adventure, and to appreciate the simple things in life. Through the ‘Storyteller of the Year’ contest we hope to capture some of these sweet family moments and encourage parents to use their best storytelling abilities to spark their child’s imagination and create long-lasting memories.”
The Grand Prize Winner will be designated as the Winnie the Pooh “Storyteller of the Year.” The winner will receive a trip for four to Los Angeles, be honored at an event in early June 2013, and will also win an additional Pooh Prize Basket. Three Fan Favorites and two Honorable Mentions will also be awarded prizes.
To enter, all parents and families need to do is create a simple, one-minute video that’s sweet like “hunny,” full of wonder, or funny, as they read a select Winnie the Pooh story to their child and show their favorite Pooh items. You can choose from three Pooh stories- “A Blustery Day”, “Happy Mother’s Day” and “A Bouncy Babysitter” to create your own video. You can submit your video now through May 15, 2013 here. Don’t forget to check out all of the official rules for creating your video here.
