Poetry Slam! 2012 Video of the Week: M.C. Terrell Elementary School

NOTE: Each week, we are featuring a school's performance from the 15th Annual DC SCORES Poetry Slam!, the largest youth slam in the District! During the two-night culminating event of the fall season -- held Nov. 28 at Columbia Heights Education Campus and Nov. 29 at H.D. Woodson High School -- 35 schools had the opportunity to perform original group and solo poems and songs in front of their peers, families and community members. At the end of each night, teams were called back up on stage to receive trophies.

We hope you enjoy this glimpse into the self-expression DC SCORES instills in youth. 

On the second night of the Slam!, M.C. Terrell Elementary School showed no nerves in performing on stage at the school's first Slam!. Blending creativity and school spirit, Terrell demonstrated that the DC SCORES model has clearly worked in instilling self expression in the school's youth.

M.C. Terrell relished being in the spotlight. Check out their poets in action!

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

DC SCORES needs your help to serve more students, like M.C. Terrell's, in the District deserving of a soccer and poetry team. Please consider Giving the Gift of a Team through our end-of-year campaign before Dec. 31.
