Poetry Slam Competition

Highlighting the DC Effective Speaking Poetry Slam winners
Posted on 04/25/2024
Poetry SlamWe are pleased to announce our 2024 Dual Credit Effective Speaking Poetry Slam Competition Champions. Each of the high school participants in Rachel Shipp’s class was challenged to compose and present a poetic composition incorporating powerful diction and creativity, demonstrating voice projection, inflection, pacing, maintaining strong eye contact, and strong physical stance. Students served as competition judges, utilizing the performance rubric for each presentation. The highest and lowest scores were removed, leaving the average performance ratings, which were then compared to each participant. Those with the highest average ratings were selected as the winners. Each of the DC Effective Speaking students met the challenge and brought powerful presentations to the competition. Celebrating the power of words and creativity!
