Fort Bend County Libraries is hosting an online Poetry Slam Competition for teens and young adults aged 14-20. The theme for the competition is “Dare to Hope.” Participants are invited to compete for prizes in this performance-poetry event by reading original works they have created themselves. Entries may be submitted online April 5 through May 3.
 
The live-streamed performance-poetry competition will take place on Saturday, May 8, at 2:00 pm.
 
Prizes will be awarded to the top three competitors.
 
Guidelines:
 
*Participants must be between the ages of 14 and 20.
 
*Judging will be based on language, idea, theme, tone, mood, vocal strength, emotion, body/facial movement, and fluency.
 
*Participants should submit three poems to be read during two qualifying rounds and a final round. A panel of five judges will determine which competitors advance to the second round and the final round. The order of performances will be randomly chosen on May 8 at the start of the event.
 
*Each poem must be limited to no longer than 3 minutes and 10 seconds in length.
 
*Poets may read from a copy of their poem, but they may not use props, costumes, or musical instruments.
 
*Poems will be performed during a live-streamed event for the general public. All poems should be appropriate for all ages.
