McDonald's Storytelling Contest Live Audition
It was all fun, when I had the opportunity to be among the panel of judges for McDonald’s Storytelling Contest in the central region at McDonald’s Mutiara Damansara last week. It was a live audition session, one which I totally love due to the cute, creative and very brave children. They were so talented!

As part of its nationwide tour, the shortlisted participants for the live auditions were selected from hundreds of Instagram video entries. Held for the first time ever on a big scale by McDonald’s Malaysia, the contest offers up to RM70,000.00 worth of prizes to be won including a family holiday to Warner Bros Movie World theme park in Australia as the grand prize.

Everyone's aiming for the grand prize, which is pretty cool
McDonald’s is excited to be in this journey to nurture and identify the next storyteller in Malaysia. Through this contest, it is an opportunity to build stronger families within our communities. With overwhelming number of entries from the central region, another live audition will be held this weekend in McDonald’s Putrajaya and McDonald’s Titiwangsa respectively.
My Experience Judging The McDonald's Storytelling Contest Live Auditions
|Creatively dressed kids, with lots of action gestures during their story telling|
|Love this kid, with her witch outfit, she totally captured our attention with her antics and superb storytelling|
|Some of the storytellers were really cute|
It was an honour being chosen as an invited judge to judge the McDonald's Storytelling Contest Live Audition @ Mcdonald's Mutiara Damansara. I got to watch these young storytellers spin and capture our attention with their cute antics. Some brought props, while others had really unique costumes to match their stories. All are superb, even that very young one. I do think these young kids have such a good grasp of the English language. Never would I have imagined myself being as eloquent nor as brave as them when I was their age.
