  11. Great American Story

    203 Park Ave S
    Park Rapids, MN 56470
    Call: (218) 732-4111

    Once a year, the Great American Story committee in Park Rapids, MN, issues a call for submissions around a specific theme — heroism, holidays, family life, for example. Four finalist contestants convene at Armory Square and face off to an audience of story lovers and judges. Their votes decide who wins the prize money and who wears the crown of Great American Story Teller.

    Recognizing the wealth of story-telling talent in this state, this region, this country and the popularity that local story-tellers (Garrison Keillor, Lorna Landvik, Kevin Kling) have enjoyed, we borrowed the format from the Great American Think-off — a call for submissions, winnowing the contestants to four finalists, each finalist telling his/her story in front of a live audience. The audience votes for the top two, who are given prompts and then deliver impromptu stories. The audience again selects the grand prize winner of $1,000 and the crown.
