We made it to Friday Buzz readers! But before heading off for the weekend, here's five things you need to know!
1. DO YOU KNOW A GREAT STORYTELLER? WE WANT TO MEET THEM!
To celebrate parents and guardians who foster their child's creativity and teach valuable life lessons through storytelling, Disney Consumer Products (DCP) has launched a nationwide search for the Winnie the Pooh "Storyteller of the Year." To enter, all parents and families need to do is create a simple, one-minute video that's sweet like "hunny," full of wonder, or funny, as they read a select Winnie the Pooh story to their child and show their favorite Pooh items. From April 22 through May 15, 2013, videos can be submitted online at DisneyStore.com/PoohStoryteller or from any mobile device.
Disney Consumer Products will select the winning video that best showcases creativity, integrates Pooh items, and captures the essence of Winnie the Pooh. The grand prize winner will receive a trip to Los Angeles, Calif. for a family of four and an assortment of Winnie the Pooh products including toys, books, and other gifts. As an added bonus, the winning video will be added to an upcoming version of Disney's Winnie the Pooh: Wonder and Wander app and everyone who downloads the free app will see the "master storyteller" in action.

Minnie Messengers are bloggers who will act as Minnie's eyes and ears, sharing live updates from fashion shows, music events and more, blogging about Minnie-inspired style.
