2016 Unified District Poetry Slam | Finals

May 6, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

FREE

Building off of the success of Youth Speaks in-school and after-school workshops, assemblies, open mics and the Teen Poetry Slam, the District Poetry Slam is an exciting opportunity for your school’s students to perform, dialogue, and speak their minds with high school youth throughout the district and the entire Bay Area. The event is a team slam, with each participating school having a team of 4-6 poets. The District Slam event is open to schools beyond San Francisco and Oakland: schools from across the East Bay, North Bay, and Peninsula are invited to send a team to the Greater Bay Slam preliminary bout! Spots are limited, and priority is given to schools with Youth Speaks residencies and/or SLAM clubs. The top-scoring schools from each bout move on to perform for the title of UDPS Slam Champion!

The 2015-16 District Slam will be taking place April 26-May 6, 2016. The preliminary and final rounds happen during the school day and Youth Speaks can provide transportation to a limited number of schools wanting to attend on a first come-first serve basis.
