Highlighting our youth poets: Perry Street Prep

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 first night of the Slam!, led by Shine Award winner DeAndre W. (see him perform his poem live on NBC!)., Perry Street Prep won the coveted Golden Mic award for the best elementary school performance with an ode to moms everywhere and a heartfelt poem about raging pain.

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