Owen Charles (Soph) Receives National Award for Storytelling

On November 3rd, Sophomore Owen Charles was one of four youth competitively selected from candidates across the country to receive a national award for his contributions to the art and practice of storytelling.

Owen traveled to Raleigh, NC , and was recognized at The 36th Annual National Association of Black Storytellers Festival and Conference. He was nominated by leadership from Chicago's ASE Youth Ensemble, a group he has performed with since he was 9 years old (and now also volunteers with to support and teach the storytelling tradition to younger students).
