Poetry Slam Scholarships

Yes, they are a thing!

Youth who are into slam poetry can get rewarded for their talents and interests. At Power Poetry, youth can submit their poems and earn scholarship money or just share their words with the world. Some of their open slams feature topical events that impact youth in the world today, from racism to human trafficking, while others (that mention a scholarship in their titles) provide opportunity to further youth knowledge and education. 

You can visit the site to browse other people's poems and find out if you're interested in submitting your own. There are also lots of other resources at the website, from social justice actions you can take to resources for finding your own local poetry group. There are also lots of tips about writing poetry if your goal is to work on your poetry writing skills.

Do you ever perform slam poetry or write it at home? Tell us what it's like to share it with the world.
