6th Grade Slam Poets Throw Down The Gauntlet
The students of the 6th grade class took the stage this morning to compete against one another in a contest of rhyme and rhythm at the first-ever Conservatory Lab Poetry Slam. Before an audience of peers and a series of randomly-selected judging panels, the poets bared their souls through impassioned performance poetry. Sharing their feelings about family, school, war, and the big questions of life, each vied to win the hearts of the audience. Although only three top prizes were awarded, each participant received a certificate honoring the courage and skill each employed in this exciting competition.
