Speak Your Mind Scholarship Slam


Your mind is an amazing thing. It collects information, helps you sort out your emotions and (best of all) it's the portal into your imagination. We want to know what you're thinking about. Tell us in a poem what makes you tick for a chance to win $1,000 for your college education.

C'mon. Dig around in that brain of yours and pick any idea that really makes you think. Need a push to get started? Check out our action and tip guides for inspiration.
