Creative Presentation:

5 Minute Story Pitch Challenge Activity


This is an interactive exercise in spontaneous creativity and storytelling.



Create a storytelling activity that can be conducted by instructors in the classroom, online, and by students on their own.


Based on a randomized list of story genres and a wildcard element, players have 5 minutes to pitch a story and include as many story elements as they can. Each story element is worth a certain number points.



I created an Excel document with two lists of story genres, one list of wildcard elements, and a list of point categories. I designed the document to randomize a combination of two story genres and one wildcard element.



I then created a video that explains the instructions and breaks down each story element that will earn players points.
