Joan Cousins is the clear winner at 43% of the vote and
late entry, Rona Leventhal was 24 votes behind her
Susan Lenoe in a very respectable showing at third place.
Voting closed at midnight and the tally is in. And checked twice.
All the contestants "won" as people watched and thought about their work as performers and
we all win because their videos have been seen by so many (over 1500 views of the 5 videos) which is a big step in the right direction for "traffic" to our site which intends, through posting of interesting content, to raise the profile of storytelling. Congratulations to Joan and to all. And thanks again to the storytellers who participated. Your hard work and creative use of this opportunity has helped more people engage with you as performers and with storytelling as an art form.
