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!, Kelly Miller Middle School -- the school where our middle school program started! -- continued its string of strong performances with four poems about "believing and never giving up" and the power of friendship. The students choreographed their performance to background music, and at the end of the night took home the third-place trophy for middle schools.
