Words can change the world and poetry has changed 50,000 America SCORES students’ lives. Out of thousands of SCORES students, 28 will travel to New York City on April 7, 2014, many for the first time, to perform their original poetry at the America SCORES National Poetry Slam!. It is a one of a kind event where students share the power of words and show the power of SCORES to change lives. All of your donations will directly support a SCORES student.
