English Language Storytelling Competition

Submission Deadline: 21st December, 2020

Every Child Has a Story to Tell

In collaboration with Learning A-Z and Malaysian English Language Teaching Association (MELTA), mangoSTEEMS proudly presents an English Language Storytelling Competition. 

Storytelling is an excellent way to unleash a child’s creativity and thinking skills.

Embark on a “tell-a-tale” journey which will certainly ignite the child’s innate curiosity and imagination!

Pick a book from our carefully selected genres and bring the story to life by retelling it either in your version or tell it as it is!

Remember, make it fun, exciting & creative!

Open to all children aged 4-12
