Our theme this month was Hometown Heroes. We heard stories about family, neighbors, and other everyday heroes who had an impact on the storytellers' lives. Jason Plotkin won with his story about lessons learned from people he encountered as a photojournalist, and the heroism of supporting people who face challenges.

Jason is pictured here with this month's host, Luanne Sims (right), and his wife, Melissa (left), who is featured in his story. Jason won an exclusive York Story Slam journal from our friends at Story Supply Co. and earned a spot in our Grand Slam in November.

Watch videos of all the stories from that night here.
