#YOLO and "classy" are two phrases we rarely hear together--but that's about to change. At Power Poetry we think it's time to class up #YOLO, so we're launching a new scholarship slam called #YOWO: You Only Write Once (for this scholarship slam).
Of course we hope you won't ONLY write once! By #YOWO, we mean you should make your words count. Write about anything in your life, school, community, country or the world that matters to you. This is about being heard--for the chance to win $1,000 for your education.
Basic requirements? (1) 25 years of age (or younger), (2) a current or former high school student who will attend/is attending college within the U.S. or its territories, and (3) a submitted original poem with the poetry slam tag You Only Write Once Scholarship Slam.
