The Campus Slammer Showcase Mic

Liz deLise 2 nd place in the Campus Slammer Finals
 The Showcase Mic April 30, 2011 at 9:30 p.m.was  an opportunity to highlight the  Campus Slammer in front of the audience gathered at the CT. Storytelling Festival.

Storyteller Miss Celia Whitehead committee member and Conn College student

 It was set up to showcase the winner of Campus Slammer and two runners up.  It is difficult though to have the event just as exams and many year end activities commence in  the college world. We were able to hear the story of one of our runners up and another Conn College contestant and committee member. Then we had the open slots for anyone who wanted to tell a five minute story Ten people put their name in and shared stories along with our college tellers.

This year Campus Slammer traveled to 6 college campus locations.We heard so many excellent student stories and culminated in the finals at Conn College April 28, 2011. The showcase mic was our chance to share and celebrate Campus Slammer with the storytelling community it was a night rich in story, laughter, drama and fun!
