Taking Poetry SLAM 2017 on the Road!


Poetry SLAM is definitely one of America SCORES New York's favorite events, if you couldn't already tell! Even though New York SLAM was almost two months ago, we are incredibly excited to bring some of our winners up to Boston, MA for the East Coast America SCORES Poets Banquet on Saturday February 10.

ASNY will get the opportunity to showcase some of the most impressive poems from SLAM 2017 and give our talented poet-athletes the chance to experience a new city. Until our trip to Boston, here are the performances from each elementary school to satisfy your SLAM fix!
