Do you have an interesting story to share about getting into college? Education Lab is recruiting current students and recent grads to share short, inspirational tales about how they made a successful transition to higher education.

Selected speakers will get coaching and appear at our May 20 event, Storytellers: How I Got Into College, at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute.

To participate, call 206-464-2057 and tell us about an obstacle you overcame to get into college. Your recording should be no more than two minutes and include your full name, phone number and email address.

The deadline to call in your pitch is 5 p.m. Friday, May 2. We will follow up with you by Monday, May 12, if we are interested in your story.

More information about the May 20 event is available here.

Questions? Call 206-464-3226 or email educationlab@seattletimes.com.
