Rota Teen Poetry Slam

February 2017 was recently recognized as Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month in the CNMI. This is part of national and local efforts to raise awareness about abuse in teen dating relationships, promote healthy and safe relationships, and help promote resources available for victims and survivors.

The Rota Teen Poetry Slam will take place on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm on the campus of Dr. Rita H. Inos Junior Senior High School. Teens interested in competing must submit their poems and contact information before or by 4:30pm on Monday, February 13, 2017 for review by emailing rotacoalition@gmail.com.

For more information on the Teen Poetry Slam on Rota, contact the NMCADSV office on Rota at 532-3878 or a team representative at 783-2827, or email rotacoalition@gmail.com.

Poem submissions must include the contestant’s full name, age, names of school, and contact number(s). Poems may also be sent within the body of the email or as an attached MS Word document or PDF. Note that poems must not contain real names or profanity.

Judging criteria for poems and performances include quality of writing, entertainment value of the poem, connection to audience, and relevance to Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month. There will also be two competing divisions: the 13-15 year old division and the 16-19 year old division.
