The Story Competition with stories written by the elderly and organised by "la Caixa" Foundation in collaboration with Radio Nacional de España, is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Ten years of stories which someone experienced and shared and which, today, form part of the lives of all their readers.
The aim of this initiative is to encourage reading and use of the imagination among older people, as well as show society their abilities, knowledge and values.
The stories written by the elderly reflect their lives and all the knowledge they've garnered after years of experiences, as well as how they see our story and our time.
The winning story is adapted for the radio and broadcast by Radio Nacional de España, its text is published in La Vanguardia newspaper and it's also uploaded onto the "la Caixa" Foundation and RNE websites, as well as its author being one of the judges the following year. In recognition of the participants, all shortlisted stories are also published in a book produced every two years.
