The Story Competition with stories written by older people organised by "la Caixa" Foundation in collaboration with Radio Nacional de España is celebrating its eleventh anniversary. And this year there are two categories: short stories of up to four pages in length, and micro-stories of up to one hundred words. An excellent opportunity to share stories that are full of imagination and become a part of those of us who read them.
The aim of this initiative is to encourage reading and use of the imagination among the elderly, as well as to demonstrate their abilities, knowledge and values to society.
The stories written by older people reflect their lives and all the knowledge they've garnered after years of experiences, as well as how they view our history and our time.
The winning story and micro-story will be adapted for radio and broadcast on Radio Nacional de España (RNE), as well as being published in
