NSA St Louis Storytelling Competition 2024

A first-of-its-kind storytelling competition is coming to NSA St. Louis, and it’s the
perfect opportunity to showcase your talent and SHINE!

What’s it all about?

This storytelling competition was created by professional speakers for professional speakers.

Competition will occur on three levels: Chapter, Regional & National, with each competitor scored by professional judges on three tracks of Marketability, Impact & Presentation – at all three competition levels.

You’ll have 5 minutes to WOW and take your shot at being chosen as one of three finalists who will ultimately compete ON STAGE at Influence in August 2024!


Here’s how it will work:

~ 10 chapter members will compete at the local level on Friday, March 1st.

~ 5 judges will score each presentation based on Impact, Marketability, and Presentation – and 1 local contestant will be chosen to move on to the Regional competition and a chance to compete in the national level competition, on stage, at Influence 2024.

~ The first to submit their registration will fill the open slot, be added to the list of 10 competitors at the local level, and be asked to pay the entry fee of $25.  All other registrants will be added to a list of alternates who will compete if someone from the 10 drops out of the competition.  *Alternates will be added to the list in the order received.

~ Once you are registered, we will notify you by email and let you know if you are one of the 10 presenting on March 1st or an alternate.
