Event Details

The 12 top ranking teenage performance poets in the DC metropolitan area perform in the Grand Slam Finals for the 2014 DC Youth Slam Team on Saturday, February 22, 2014, 6:30 – 9:00pm at Arena Stage, 1101 6th St, SW, Washington, DC 20024. The Grand Slam consists of three rounds of poetry competition, with scores for each poet determined by pre-selected judges in the audience.

 

The high school students performing their original spoken word poetry in the Grand Slam Finals have made it through multiple rounds of preliminary poetry slams, auditions, and the Semi-Finals Slam this season, to earn a coveted spot on Split This Rock’s premier youth poetry program, the DC Youth Slam Team. For over two decades the DC Youth Slam Team has coached a select group of talented District youth to perform at regional, national, and international poetry slam festivals. Last summer the 2013 DC Youth Slam Team earned 2nd place out of 50 teams at the Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival, setting a DC record. The 12 students performing at Grand Slam Finals will form the team that represents DC at Brave New Voices this summer in Philadelphia.
