Competition Overview

Can You Hear Me Now? will have students perform poems for judges and an audience. They will perform individually as well as a team, being given a mark from 0.0 to 10.0 by judges selected from the community and audience. Scores are tallied for each team to determine a winner for the slam. The slam is a friendly competition characterized by mutual respect, encouragement, and inspiration. As the spirit of SLAM says: “The point is not the points. The point is the poetry.”
