14th annual NYC Teen Poetry Slam Finals

   Over 500 teen poets across the city have competed in preliminary and semi-final rounds to make to finals in the hope of being apart of the slam team to represent New York City at the Brave New Voices competition in California. 24 poets made it to the grand slam finals event, which was held at the world famous Apollo theater. 10 poets made it to the second round and 6 poets won/made up the slam team. The night was great. Everyone gave their all and I kinda felt sorry for the judges. It was certainly a hard decision but they made the right choice. I am proud of all 6 poets and they all deserve it. Here I have a little bit of footage i got of the night. Ashley August's performance and the announcement of the winners.:
