Calling all poets! You are the writers of intimate dialogue with the world and emotion. We invite you to participate in one of the countless opportunities that our feelings can experience. We ask for your desired words to scatter the page and overstep the boundaries of every day structure. Today, the world relies on your efforts to write and protect true history—the one we each survive with. Tell your story with the melody of a poem. Be proactive and share what you have hidden for the right occasion. This is the occasion. You are the poet.
Today, we dismiss textbooks and invite you to tell us the poem untold. That’s why for this scholarship slam, it’s all up to you! Submit an original poem about anything at all, and you may win $1,000 to put towards your college education.
