The Poetry SLAM! showcases the power of America SCORES to improve lives while celebrating the achievements of outstanding elementary and middle school youth. A star-studded event, dozens of SCORES students take center stage for the opportunity to perform their original poetry to a captivated audience. The SLAM! is attended by SCORES families, coaches and teachers from around the city, as well as representatives of top corporate sponsors.
The 2020 Poetry SLAM will be a virtual SLAM featuring all students who take part in our Fall programming. All students who take part in our Fall programming will have the chance to submit video of themselves performing their original poetry. Students will be judged and have the chance to win prizes as one of the top poets. Keep an eye on this space to see all the work of our poet-athletes.
