Each spring, America SCORES celebrates the achievements of our students with a National Poetry SLAM! Two poets from each of our 15 cities are selected from over 5,000 America SCORES students to travel to New York. In front of an audience of hundreds, America SCORES poets perform original poetry from the stage of Harlem's World Famous Apollo Theater -- an unforgettable milestone in our children's lives. A monumental achievement, our students leave New York understanding the true power of their voice.

With each awe-inspiring poem, the 6th Annual America SCORES National Poetry SLAM! showcased how incredibly brave and gifted our poet-athletes are. From Black History Month to Demon Cats to Shining Smiles, no topic was left out in front of a captivated audience families, coaches, and supporters. The evening was filled with memorable musical performances by smart-rapper Psalm One. America SCORES honored Chris Heck, President of Business Operations for New York Red Bulls and welcomed special guests: Mehdi Ballouchy, Kenny Cooper, Stephen Keel, Dax McCarty, and Jan Gunnar Solli.
