Guidelines for making a great audio entry
What are the rules for audio entries?
• Your audio piece can be up to 4 minutes long. We suggest 2-4 minutes.
• An audio entry could be a yarn, song or a speech. Check out the links below
for inspiration.
• When your entry is ready to go, upload it to YouTube and turn it on private
(click here to see how to do this).
• Submit the URL link on the Positive Choices Story-Telling Competition page.

What should the story be about?
Tell us a real story about an aspect of your life where you made a positive choice. Here are

1) Practice reading your story or singing your song before you record to make sure it
sounds great.
2) Record in a quiet place so you don’t have other noises interrupting your song or
3) We encourage you to make your own music for your entry! But if you’re using
someone else’s music, remember it’s not legal to use it in your song or speech

4) Audacity is an application that lets you records from your computer.

For example:

difficult times, show or describe a time when you had troubles and your friends
supported you and tell us how they did this.
2) Tell us what YOU think - Share your view on an issue in your community.
3) Have you had any turning points in your life? Were you heading down one path
and then your life course changed for the positive? This makes for a great story!
4) Be yourself, use words you would use when talking to your friends, behave
naturally. We want to learn about you!

3) Upload MP4 file to YouTube.
Be creative and share your story with the world!
