We took the youngest team ever with two 10 year olds, two 11 year olds, a 12 year old and two 13 year olds. These poets competed against high school 16 and 17 year olds and made quite a showing!

Two of our poets made it into the 3rd round and we placed 3rd and 5th!

The event raised money and collected food to benefit Manna as well as worked to bring more awareness of hunger in our community.
