Attention all high school students, there’s a poetry slam competition accepting submissions right now! If you love to write poetry and you like poetry slams then do we have an opportunity for you! The Mann Music Center and the Philadelphia Youth Poetry Movement have teamed up to create Liberty Unplugged: A Poetry Slam Contest. Students must write an original piece on one, or more, of three topics: human rights, voting rights and freedom from modern-day slavery. There are cash prizes and concert tickets up for gram for the slam winners.
This contest launched July 5th and will close on August 13th, 2015. If you are interested in submitting your poem please CLICK HERE
