  • Patrimonito should play a vital role in the storyboard among other characters, maximum of two characters, a girl and a boy. The script of the storyboard must have a start, middle, and end point.
  • Beginning: The beginning of the script must be relevant to the selected World Heritage place
  • Middle: The middle or backbone of the writing must convey a challenge, an obstacle, or a problem that the characters overcome. This part of the script should express the main message of the story
  • End: The end of the story should suggest a solution to resolve the obstacle or problem.
  • The creator should consider the balance of frames, the issues provoked by the site, and solutions.
