ABOUT JUDGING:Judges are one of our most critical roles in the slam; they help determine which poets will move onto bigger stages to be heard by bigger audiences. Judges should think of themselves as encouragers of the 13-19 year old writers. The key is fairness and consistency. Please note that prior experience is not necessary for judging; we will provide you useful framework and guidelines to help this role become a great experience for you.
