Will you be SA's next Story Bosso?

This Literacy Month, Nal’ibali proudly invites all South Africans to enter the fourth annual Story Bosso multilingual storytelling talent search, by telling us your favourite hero-inspired story.

This year, to inspire greatness in our children and to keep the memory of South African heroes alive, we are placing a special focus on remembering and telling the stories of our heroes.

Anyone can enter – all ages and languages are welcome! Practise telling your story by playing our specially developed storytelling board game with friends or family. All family-friendly stories are welcome. Tell or read your story in any of South Africa’s 11 official languages.

Choose a category 

Your story should fit into one of these four categories:

1. Living legend: This kind of hero is well-known and still alive.
2. Past hero: This kind of hero could be featured in a history book or in a tale of the past.
3. Fictional hero: This kind of hero is make-believe.
4. Personal hero: This kind of hero doesn’t need to be well-known, but is a hero to you.
