Youth Speaks Unified District Poetry Slam


Unified District Poetry Slam:: Registration Open!

The District Slam is back. Not to be confused with The Bay Area Teen Poetry Slam, the Unified District Poetry Slam, also known as the 'District Slam' is where students represent their schools, performing and sparking dialogue with other youth from their school district and the entire Bay Area. This year, we are excited to announce that we are expanding the District Slam in two major ways: the event will be a team slam, with each participating school having a team of 4-6 poets. Schools across the East Bay, North Bay, and Peninsula are invited to send a team to the District Slam! Spots are limited, and priority is given to schools with Youth Speaks residencies and/or SLAM clubs.
