On Wednesday, April 29th at 7:30pm, Framingham High School will hold the final round of its eleventh annual senior class poetry slam here at Amazing Things. A “slam” is a competition between teams of poets who perform their own original work, bringing poetry off the page and onto the stage in a gloves-off, no-holds-barred verbal boxing match with judges chosen randomly from the audience. This FHS slam began as a class project in 2004, and has since turned into a school-wide, and now community-wide event.
Preliminary rounds, consisting of 85 teams of poets from the class of 2015, will be held at FHS on April 16th and 17th to determine which teams will move on to the finals. The top three teams at the final round will take home cash prizes and, more importantly, bragging rights.
This event is generously sponsored by the Framingham Education Foundation and the FHS PTBO. Admission is $5, or free with a Framingham High School ID.
