Narrative Addressing Qualifications of the Nominee

Here are some topics you may want to cover. Please focus on topics relevant to your specific award. The ORACLE committee can't judge a performer's excellence if the Narrative and Letters of Support concentrate on his service and leadership; we can't give Talking Leaves (publications) if we hear mostly about her excellent performances; etc.




  • Description of the nominee’s originality in their body of artistic work and/or preservation of storytelling as a traditional art form (especially important for A, B, C).
  • Description of how the nominee’s work has expanded public awareness of storytelling.


  • Description of the nominee’s contribution to NSN (especially important for D, F, G).

  • Description of the nominee’s contribution to the storytelling community (especially important for D, F, G).

  • Description of the nominee’s contribution to the community in which they live (especially important for D, F, G).

NOTE: No more than five pages (8 1/2” x 11”, with 1-inch margins and type font no smaller than 11) narrative will be accepted. Excess materials will not be forwarded to evaluators.


Questions about submissions: 1-800-525-4514.
Please note: Letters or excerpts in support of a winning nomination may be posted on the NSN website.

All original copies will be kept in the NSN office. If the nominee is not selected in the year nominated, the nominee’s paperwork will be kept on file and automatically reconsidered in the following year.
