Framingham High School Poetry Slam Finals
April 24, 2013
Framingham High School will hold the final round of its eighth annual poetry slam. A "slam:" is a competition between teams of poets who perform their own original work, bringing poetry off the page and onto the stage in a gloves-off, no-holds-barred verbal boxing match with judges chosen randomly from the audience. This FHS slam began as a class project in 2004, and turned into a school-wide, and now community-wide event.
Seven preliminary rounds consisting of 50 teams of poets from the class of 2011 will be held at FHS on April 14th and 15th to determine which teams will move on to the finals. The top three teams at the final round will take home cash prizes and, more importantly, bragging rights. This event is generously sponsored by the Framingham Education Foundation and the FHS PTBO.
