March 6th, 2015 at 7 PM (students who have not previously competed in the competition must also be able to attend an information session at 4 PM on February 8th).
Writer, performer, and emcee extraordinaire, Chinaka Hodge, is returning to host the Competition. Three judges will score poets from high schools throughout Marin County as they perform their original uplifting, moving, and inspiring work. The three poets with the highest scores will compete in the championship round, dazzling the judges and the audience.
We have two separate registration links for poets who want to compete–one for Tam students and one for non-Tam students. This is to increase the diversity of schools the poets attend.
Registration to compete in the competition opens Monday, January 5th and closes Friday, January 30th
Tam High students register here.
Students from schools other than Tam, register here.
