Seattle Sounders FC Presents: SCORES 9th Annual Poetry Slam at Town Hall Seattle!

Seattle Sounders FC presents America SCORES Seattle’s 9th Annual Poetry Slam! on Friday, November 18th. The Poetry Slam!, the culminating event of the SCORES Fall Season curriculum - The Power of Poetry, will feature more than 160 elementary school students from Seattle’s underserved neighborhoods performing their own original works of poetry. For many of our children, reciting their original poetry on a public stage is the first time in their lives they have been publicly celebrated for their accomplishments. The event will showcase poets from Bailey Gatzert, Dunlap, Highland Park, Maple and Roxhill Elementary Schools.

After the Slam!, students will continue to hone their spoken word skills in hopes of becoming one of the two finalists chosen to take an all expenses paid trip to New York City for the sixth annual America SCORES National Poetry Slam! in the Spring of 2012.

Please join us on November 18th at 5pm to celebrate the achievements of the SCORES poet-athletes!
