Poets' Banquet Spring 2024

After the fall Poetry Slam team performance, Writing Coaches at every Scores partner school select two students to perform an individual poem at our annual spring Poets’ Banquet. 

Students participate in one-on-one workshops with a dedicated writing coach over two months to prepare a single composition for performance at the Banquet and compete for the opportunity to become the Poet-Athlete of the Year!

There are many ways you can support Poetry Slam and the Poet’s Banquet! Volunteers help with set up, event registration, as judges and more. Contact Development Associate Colette Anton if you are interested in volunteering at either event!
