“Creativity” by Cindy

I am a very creative girl,
my mind is everywhere, everywhere, everywhere
thinking of writing a book to a movie,
(coming out in 2021)
My imagination is bigger than my knowledge,
my ideas are so fictional yet so realistic,
my ideas are sci-fi with a little help of wi-fi
award winning ideas,
I’ll have Oscars on my wall,
I’ll be a great director and author,
but that is miles away
but I know I’ll be in New York someday
And that’s today!

We asked Cindy what her favorite subject was, she immediately responded, "Writing!"

Similarly, when we asked Cindy what her favorite part of SCORES was, she told us it was,"That it's a mixture of writing and soccer."

We know that Cindy will be an excellent representative of 

America SCORES Seattle in New York 

and we could not be more proud! 

Congratulations, Cindy!

With so many AWESOME things happening at 

America SCORES Seattle

 it's hard to keep track! is exactly what our #PoetAthletes have been up to! 


Last month we told you about our exciting new JR SCORES, we could not be more thrilled to say that students and coaches have loved it alike! This story was highly effective at teaching our students literacy and life-skills, both indoors and out! With all the excitement that you can imagine along the way, we are excited to hear from one of our favorite Maple Elementary coaches that Zumba the monkey, has almost escaped the zoo and the Golden Boot, lost early in the season, is sure to soon be found! Thanks to all of our coaches who continue to #EngageAndEmpower our youngest #PoetAthletes!   


Maybe you've heard the buzz, but just in case, Seattle is excited to send two amazing #PoetAthletes to NYC next month! Since our finalists, Cindy and Mohamed were selected, we have done everything that we can to make sure that their trip will be one to remember! When these two awesome poet's mentioned that maybe they wanted to bring home a t-shirt and take a tour of N.Y.U., we wanted to make sure that could happen for them! We know how hard they have worked and believe strongly that they deserve the best experience possible! We are happy to say that we are well on our way and you can still donate HERE today! 

Reach for the Stars: Annual Gala & Auction

On April 24th America Scores Seattle will host its twelfth annual gala and auction. This year's theme will be "Reach for the Stars", something we see our #PoetAthletes do everyday! This is one of our most important fundraisers of the year and we hope that this year will be a great success! The event will include dinner, games, and both a silent and live auction. AND...maybe most exciting, this year's program will include four special speakers, our very own SCORES poets! If you are interested in becoming involved, sponsoring our special guest speakers or have questions about the auction, please don't hesitate to contact us at! We look forward to sharing this special evening with you all on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter! 

Spring Season

We can't believe it's already here...well, almost at least! Here in Seattle, we always look forward to a little sunshine, and this year is no exception! Spring Season will begin next month, April 20th, and we are so excited! Along with months of fun on the field and in the classroom, this season is one of our favorites, because it includes our #PoetAthletes commitment to their communities! This commitment is fulfilled through a season long service learning project, which is designed and executed by our students. This year, we intend to concentrate these projects within the schools which our students attend. It is our hope that this will allow our students to engage in service learning not only during the hour and a half they meet with their teammates and coaches at SCORES, but throughout the day, week, month and year...even in years to follow! Stay tuned to learn more about these projects, our #PoetAthletes, Game Days and other exciting upcoming events!

America SCORES National Slam! 

We could not be more proud and excited about this once in a lifetime opportunity for our #PoetAthletes! Mohamed and Cindy were selected by our judges to represent Seattle in NYC -- we think that they will do an amazing job! Because this is such a special opportunity, we are hoping that they will truly be able to experience the city. 

In order to accomplish this task, we are asking for YOUR HELP!
