Highlighting our youth poets: Cesar Chavez Parkside

NOTE: Each week, we are featuring a school's performance from the 14th Annual Poetry Slam!. During the two-night culminating event of the fall season, each of the 27 schools DC SCORES serves had the opportunity to perform original poems and songs in front of their peers, families and community members.

On the second night of the Slam!, led by Shine Award winner Jeffry F., Cesar Chavez Parkside put on an inspiring performance highlighted by the hit line, "Smart is the new swag." Check out the poet-athletes educating the audience at H.D. Woodson High School.

To view any performance from the Poetry Slam!, visit the DC SCORES YouTube page.
