DeliTeach Enterprises, LLC is excited to announce a scholarship created to highlight the talents of high school creatives via a Poetry Slam. This scholarship is open to all Long Island students entering college or vocational school in the Fall of 2019 (high school seniors). For more information on DeliTeach Enterprises, LLC, please visit our website at www.deliteach.com.

What is a poetry slam? According to Wikipedia, it is a competition in which poets read or recite original work. Poetry slams began in Chicago in 1984 with its first competition designed to move poetry recitals from academia to a popular audience when American poet Marc Smith began experimenting with existing open microphone venues for poetry readings by making them competitive.

Show your skills and talents by creating a 2 to 3 minute video of yourself delivering your poem. You will be selected based on concept and delivery - basically what you are saying and how you are saying it. The top three poetry slam poets will be selected and must compete for a scholarship at our Write, Rhyme, & Recite Collective - Celebrating Young Poets & Highlighting Authors event on June 8, 2019 at the African American Museum in Hempstead, NY. All three will be guaranteed a scholarship. However, there are different amounts for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Top award is $1500. Students will be required to recite their work in front of an audience who will help determine the first, second and third place winners.

Show off your skills as a spoken word artist and apply today. Your application and digital submission is due no later than APRIL 15, 2019 - 3:00 p.m. EST. If you have any issues with uploading file - please contact verdeljones@deliteach.com
