DC SCORES hosts District's largest youth Poetry Slam!

The time has finally arrived – almost. After months of learning, writing, re-writing and practicing, DC SCORES’ 800 poet-athletes are making final preparations for the culminating highlight event of the fall season.

The 13th Annual DC SCORES Poetry Slam!.

DC SCORES is an after-school program that uses the unique combination of soccer, poetry and service-learning to inspire students ages 8-15 to live healthy lifestyles and be engaged in school and their communities.

On consecutive nights, 400 of the District’s public elementary and middle school students will take the stage during the citywide competition to vie for the coveted Golden Mic trophy that goes to the elementary school winner. The Slam! showcases original works of poetry written and performed by the students at DC SCORES' 25 schools.
