America SCORES Seattle Annual Poetry Slam

November 16, 2017

America SCORES Seattle inspires urban youth to lead healthy lives, be engaged students, and have confidence and character to make a difference in the world. We envision a world where all youth find their voices, achieve their goals, and unleash their full potential.

We partner with high-need elementary schools to provide a high quality, team-based program that integrates soccer, poetry and service-learning. Teachers serve as soccer and writing coaches, building stronger student-teacher relationships beyond the normal school day. Our innovative approach improves students' health, academic achievement and civic engagement leadership, encouraging holistic youth development.

America SCORES Seattle's Annual Poetry Slam is the culmination of the Fall Season, in which elementary students have experimented with different forms of poetry, engaged in multiple form of self reflection and creative expression, and taken steps to find their unique voice over the course of 8 weeks.

We invite you to join America SCORES Seattle as our young poet-athletes take the stage to perform their original poetry and celebrate their growth as poets and performers!

Seating at 3:30 pm
Event Start at 4:00 pm
