Poetry is one of the most historically complex, rich, and beautiful forms of expression in any language. It's a wonderful way for adults and children alike to share their stories, their joys, and their pain, in a creative and supportive fashion.
Boston Scores presents it's 2018 Poets' Banquet. Paired with the 19th Annual Poetry Slam, the Banquet highlights the top 20+ student performers out of 420 elementary students who performed in the Annual Slam this past November at the historic Strand Theatre, and a select number of student-athletes from New York Scores. The students will share their written work for an audience of teachers, parents, community members, and supporters for a chance to become the "Boston Scores Poet of the Year." We hope you will join us in supporting these talented students and the progress they are making through the Scores program.
