Squad up with the best poets at your bay area school or organization to compete to see who has the top youth poetry slam team in the bay!

Up to 30 SLAM Teams represent schools and community sites from the Bay Area in the 2023 Unified Poetry Slam. This annual team competition allows Bay Area middle schools, high schools, and organizations to bring one team of 4-6 poets to represent for a chance at larger stages and larger opportunities. Team Slams are an Olympic-Style Competition where teams compete in four 3 minute-rounds using original solo and group pieces, in which judges give a score from 0.0-10.0.
