National Slam Auditions Have Begun!
The 2011 America SCORES National Slam auditions have begun! One boy and one girl from the SCORES program will be sent on an all-expense-paid trip to New York City to perform their original poetry live at the famous Apollo Theater! Of course, our students are incredibly excited and here are some clips of their amazing auditions:
Najaha from Highland Park is an awesome poet!
Maple Elementary 5th grader Alejandro is not just an awesome soccer player- but an amazing poet too!
Ruth from Dunlap Elementary is dreaming of The Big Apple!
8 year-old Linda from Bailey Gatzert performs a beautiful poem that any adult would have been proud to write!
Winners and runners-up which should be announced early next week!
