Poesia! Poetry! Recited, declaimed, or slammed!
Any age! Any style!
English, Spanish or Tex-Mex!
RECITE a poem (no more than five minutes long). The poem can be one you’ve memorized or your own original composition. Contestants will be judged on stage presence, voice, clarity and dramatic interpretation. You can compete in six categories: 7 and younger, 8-13, 14-19, 20s, 30-69, 70 and over. One winner will be selected in each category at each of our four events. All winners will compete in the Grande Finale for prizes.
