Saipan 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 Saipan Teen Poetry Slam will take place on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 from 6pm to 9pm at the Pacific Islands Club’s Charley’s Cabaret. Teens interested in competing must submit their poems and contact information before or by 5pm on Friday, February 17, 2017 for review by emailing info@endviolencenmi.org.

Those who meet poem submission requirements will also be invited to a Slam Poetry Performance Workshop on Thursday, February 23, 2017 from 8:30am to 3pm at PIC’s Annex Room. Also, those who wish to participate need permission from a parent or guardian, and their school, if applicable. Note that attending this workshop is not mandatory.

The Saipan Teen Poetry Slam and workshop are also open to teens in Tinian.

For more information on the Teen Poetry Slam or workshop on Saipan, contact the NMCADSV office on Saipan at 234-3878 or email info@endviolencenmi.org.

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.
