Join the Paul Sawyier Public Library for an evening of fibs, fabrications, and flat-out fiction! We are proud to present The Official Kentucky Liar’s Contest in celebration of Kentucky Storytelling Month. Anyone can tell a tall tale, and we invite you to bring your best to compete for marvelous prizes, bragging rights, and the title of “Kentucky’s Best Liar.”

Who? All ages may enter.
Youth Division – 17 and under
Adult Division – 18 and up

How? Enter by putting your name in our “Liar’s Hat” beginning at 5:30pm. Contestants will be drawn at 6:00pm, and up to 10 “liars” may tell. The “lies” should be short stories 3-5 minutes in length. No notes or reading aloud are permitted. You must tell your “lie”! You should be the main character of your tale, and subject matter should be family friendly. And remember… the more exaggerated the better!

What can I win? Prizes will be awarded by decision of our judges’ panel. Contestants will be judged on technique, story development, originality, and effectiveness. Judges’ decisions are final. Winners will be chosen in the following categories: Youth Division, Adult Division, and Crowd Favorite (so be sure to bring your friends along to cheer you on!)

This event is free and open to the public. For more information on the Liar’s Contest, contact Diane Dehoney at 352-2665 x108 or [email protected].
