DC SCORES’ Westside Poetry Slam

November 2018

At DC SCORES’ Westside Poetry Slam, students from more than 15 elementary schools gathered for an energized evening of poetry, dancing, and good sportsmanship at Roosevelt High School. Many bilingual poet-athletes took the stage, performing poems in English and Spanish! Our Program Officer, Caitlin Furey, loved hearing all of the poems, which ranged widely in topic and sentiment – from favorite school lunch (funny!), to choosing love over hate (moving and inspiring!).
