Boom Slam! is an annual poetry slam that spotlights teen voices through a wildly fun and creative platform. High school students go poem-to-poem in a competition sharing their original work for a chance to be crowned the slam champion, win awesome prizes, and, most importantly, have their voices celebrated.

Each year we’ve filled local venues with supportive friends, family, and community members who’ve experienced an unforgettable afternoon of beautiful and powerful poetry— all given vibrancy and life through passionate young people!
