Scenario Performance

kyfpsKentucky—Affiliate Program of FPSPI

Scenario Performance was designed by Affliliate Program of FPSP Australia to develop and sustain the oral tradition of storytelling. ScP is ideal for students whose learning styles prefer oral communication.  ScP is about storytelling as opposed to story writing.  The story is to be “told” and not “read.”   A video submission will be required for this competition.

Scenario Performance is not part of Governor’s Cup, but the awards for Scenario Performance are presented at the FPS Component Events Awards Ceremony immediately preceding the Governor’ Cup State Finals Awards Ceremony in March.

Scenario Performance can help meet the needs of students’ Gifted Service Plan.


  • Junior – Grades 4-6
  • Middle Grades – Grades 7-9
  • High School – Grades 10-12


  • Scenarios have a minimum recorded length of four (4) minutes and a maximum length of five (5) minutes.
  • The recorede performance must be continuous, without cuts, edits or movements of the camera location and the camera must have a constant focus of either the head and shoulders view of the performer, or a full-body shot of the performer, sitting or standing.
  • The location of the performance is at the discretion of the storyteller.
  • Students are not allowed to move around and/or “act” out the story.
