The Project

The Wisconsin Head Start Association wants to hear your Head Start story.  We are gathering stories from current HS & EHS parents and staff to help communicate the importance of Head Start and quality childcare for our communities and for our families.  We are so excited to get to hear your story!

Your Completed Stories


Your Part

We would like to schedule an interview with you at your earliest convenience. Interviews will take place virtually over Zoom. The video will then be edited so that your story may be utilized to further the Head Start mission including, but not limited to, being posted on our and partner websites, social media and/or shared with policymakers and community members.

Follow These Steps To Apply

  1. Contact Jennie at with your name, the program that you attend or work, and a very brief synopsis of your story.
  2. Upon receiving your information, a WHSA staff member will reach out to schedule an interview time-slot with our videographer, Dave, and to provide you with a list of sample questions.

Preparing for your Interview

  • Review the interview questions ahead of time, but you do not need to have formal answers prepared.  This will be a casual conversation.
  • Before the interview, please gather a few pictures, drawings, or other things around your home that help tell the story of you and your family.  Our videographer may edit some of these items into the video clip.


You will receive a $25 gift card to compensate you for your time, participation, and sharing of your story. Gift cards will be mailed out within two weeks of your interview to the address you have provided.
