This June marked the end of the Sitka Story Lab’s pilot year of programming. It’s been an exciting, productive, and jam-packed nine months. We are proud of the foundation we have laid for Story Lab, and look forward to many years sponsoring programs that help Sitkans aged 7-19 flex their storytelling muscles.
