Southwest Minnesota Story Share: Worthington image

The Southwest Minnesota Story Share project has been launched in collaboration with the Southwest Initiative Foundation. The goal is to survey our viewing area for new voices and story ideas to increase the prospects of national television distribution of stories from rural America. In collaboration with other PBS stations in Minnesota, Pioneer PBS is also seeking stories from our viewers that deepen our understanding of our state’s origins and immigration history through Moving Lives Minnesota: Stories of Origin and Immigration

If you have a rural America story idea that you think we should pursue or you have an idea for a story for Postcards, Prairie Yard & Garden, Prairie Sportsman or Compass, please call us at 1-800-726-3178 or email us at yourtv@pioneer.org

We held our first successful Story Share gathering in Worthington on February 27, 2020. Here are some of the stories that were shared at this event:
